Improve your Review Writing with Lancaster Litfest

John Freeman
How do you distinguish yourself from the groaning internet multitudes to earn yourself a devoted following who trust what you have to say? Peter Wild, editor of Bookmunch, is running a one day Lancaster Litfest course later this month will take you through what constitutes a good review, including the importance of truth and integrity, the need to temper your temper and the balance needed between telling your reader enough to whet their appetite without spoiling what you’re reviewing.

All attendees will also be given the opportunity to review something for Bookmunch.
