Jen Campbell and Mark Forsyth talk to Rhiannon Edwards
From Blog to Book


16:00 – 17.00
Nowadays everyone has a blog, but how do you make people read it? And how do you turn your blog into a book? Join Jen Campbell, author of Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops and Mark Forsyth, author of The Etymologicon, both writers who have recently had their blogs published, for a discussion with the Ham &High’s Rhiannon Edwards, about how a small idea can become a blog and eventually a book.

Jen Campbell graduated from Edinburgh University with an MA in English Literature and now works in north London at an antiquarian bookshop. Her first book, Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops, is a Sunday Times Bestseller. She is also a published short story writer and poet. Her poetry collection The Hungry Ghost Festival is published by The Rialto.

Mark Forsyth is a bestselling author, journalist and blogger. Every job he’s ever had, whether as a ghost-writer or proof-reader or copy-writer, has been to do with words. He started The Inky Fool blog in 2009 and now writes a post almost every day. Following the success of The Etymologicon, Mark’s new book, The Horologicon, will be published by Icon in November 2012.

Rhiannon Edwards is Deputy Features Editor of the Ham&High
