Following a period of extreme ill health, Jane is delighted to join fellow writers on the “Overcoming Obstacles: Health & Wellbeing for Writers” panel at the National Writers’ Conference 2019. Tickets can be booked now – the conference will be held on 22nd June 2019 at the Bramall Music Building, University of Birmingham. Jane’s various focuses might include: adapting to new working methods, how to connect and maintain connections in the writing world (also how to keep connected during periods of immobility and body trauma), how to keep going “ONWARDS” in terms of writing and general life journeys – with a special nod to an invaluable Japanese business approach (!). There will be a lot to inspire and encourage you from all four members on this discussion panel. The aim is to share as much helpful knowledge and as many beneficial ideas for your creative and general wellbeing as possible in the time available!
