Lesley Thomson will be taking part in New Writing South’s new LGBT festival, The Coast Is Queer. She will be discussing forthcoming work as well as sharing insight into being a writer – relationships with editors, readers and the challenges she faces. The event will feature in The Coast is Queer’s Morning Social on Saturday 14th September.
Lesley Thomson is author of A Kind of Vanishing, a spellbinding tale of a lost child but also obsession and guilt. Lesley is also author of Seven Miles from Sydney, and The Detective’s Daughter series. Her latest novel, The Playground Murders (and seventh book in the series) is out now.
The Coast Is Queer is a radical new festival of LGBTQ+ voices in literature in Brighton, UK, bringing together writers, performers, academics, activists and readers for a weekend of events, workshops, panel discussions and performances to celebrate queer lives and writing.
Over three days the festival will present readings, workshops and masterclasses, new queer theatre performance and cabaret, short films, networking opportunities and a literary History Club. There will be opportunities to meet writers, to participate in writing workshop activities, and to buy and browse at our bookfair.
Lesley’s books will be available to purchase at the event.
