News from Lynne E. Blackwood

It seems Inscribe-supported writer Lynne E. Blackwood is onto a winning streak! Lynne will be appearing at The Asian Writer Festival, 21 October 2017, where she will read her shortlisted story from The Asian Writer Prize and Dividing Lines anthology. She was also Highly Commended for the Leicester Writes Prize and figures in their anthology from Dahlia Books (launched in June).

Lynne has also been selected for the second round of WriteNow (Penguin Random House) on 16 September in Bristol for her unpublished crime novel, When the Goats Come Home. It's the story of two Yezidi sisters trafficked from DAESH-held territory to the UK as sex-slaves. The novel weaves the parallel stories of the girls with that of the rookie policeman and sexual health worker who investigate their missing.

Lynne will also be leading workshops with Disability Arts Online and DaisyFest's Shaping Our Future in Surrey. In addition, she has also been commissioned to write and perform new prose and poetry on theme of 'Our Future Selves' on Saturday 14 October at Woking Library and Thursday 2 November at Guildford Library.
