I first met Vanessa Woolf when we were on the same bill at Interrobang! last year. She’s a beautiful and interesting storyteller who can even keep children quiet, therefore she is magic.
She’s asked me to write a story based on an object that has changed my life which I’ll be reading out at the Kenwood Ladies Pond, Hampstead Heath. This event’s only open to Ladies (stand down men), but if you’re going along do let me know. I’ll probably upload my story on here after the event for those that can’t make it.
The Facebook event page is here. But if you don’t do Facebook then I’ll copy and paste the relevant details below like so…
