Hay Festival Winter Weekend

We're pleased to announce that this weekend Tyler will be returning to Hay-on-Wye for the Hay Festival Winter Weekend, where he's been asked to do an event with Penny Thomas and Francesca Rhydderch.  Penny is the editor of Seren books, publisher of Francesca's exquisite debut novel, The Rice Paper Diaries, which picked up the Wales Book of the Year English-language fiction prize, in the year The Drive was nominated.  Fran and Penny also co-edited Seren's anthology, New Welsh Short Stories, in which Tyler's story, 'Night Start,' appeared. Appropriately, their event title is based around that same theme, so the trio will be discussing the short story form in general and its modern iterations in Wales and beyond.  Tickets are selling quickly but you can still pick them up for a fiver on the Hay Winter Weekend website.  The event starts at 11.30 am in The Swan drawing room on Sunday the 29th.  Hope to catch you there.
