New: YouTube Interviews with local writers, authors and writing professionals!

Updated: Jul 7

This year, we're thrilled to introduce an exclusive interview series on our YouTube channel, designed specifically for aspiring writers, authors and poets. Whether you're a budding novelist, a seasoned poet, or someone exploring the vast world of writing, our interview series offers invaluable insights and inspiration. We aim to interview writers, authors, poets or writing professionals local to the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) area of Dorset, England, with a new interview released every Monday at 6pm.

Dive into the World of Local Talent

Our interview series features a diverse lineup of local writers, authors, poets, and other writing professionals from Bournemouth and beyond. These conversations delve into their creative processes, the challenges they’ve overcome, and their advice for those looking to break into the writing industry. Here’s what you can look forward to:

Meet the Authors

Discover the journeys of Bournemouth’s finest authors. From debut novelists to best-selling writers, self-published to traditional, our interviews provide a behind-the-scenes look at their writing routines, inspirations, and the paths that led them to success. Aspiring authors will find tips on everything from plotting and character development to finding an agent and navigating the publishing world. From "Travelling Nomads" writing travel memoirs to historical crime fiction and everything in between, listen in every Monday evening to help you with writing tips, support and perhaps even getting over writer's block.

Conversations with Poets

For those who find their voice in verse, our interviews with local poets are a goldmine of inspiration. Learn about their creative processes, the themes that drive their work, and how they engage with the vibrant poetry community. Aspiring poets will gain insights into crafting compelling poetry, finding your unique voice, and getting published in literary journals.

Writing Professionals: Editors, Publishers and literary agents

Writing is just one part of the literary ecosystem. Our series also features interviews with editors, publishers, literary agents and other writing professionals who play crucial roles behind the scenes. Aspiring writers can learn about the importance of editing, what publishers look for in a manuscript, submissions and publishing advice.

Empowering Voices: Local Groups Making a Difference

Within our local area, there are remarkable artists and writers who dedicate themselves to helping others find their voice through writing. We speak with members of groups who work tirelessly with underprivileged communities, minority groups, and individuals marginalised by society. These incredible initiatives focus on empowering these voices, helping them share their unique stories and experiences. Through their work, they are not only fostering creativity but also driving social change and promoting inclusivity in the literary world.
