Writers are not born, they are inspired. It is through the works of others, through their words, style, characterisation or narrative technique they have found their own voice. Before they were writers, they were readers.
In this session the audience gets to go on a voyage of discovery as authors reveal the books that inspired them to put pen to paper.
