June 9th. 4.10pm. Bath Spa University
Caitlin gave a talk at the end of term summer event for students from the MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University. Classes take place at Corsham Court, a former royal manor where peacocks roam the grounds.
She spoke about how to earn a living as a writer, how to combine writing with research, and the joys and perils of crowdfunding.
Many of the students are writing historical novels, others are writing non-fiction and poetry. There was also a cat in the audience, seeking shade from the heat outside.
