Honno Welsh Women’s Press are offering writers the opportunity to meet Caroline Oakley, an experienced editor, for a 20 minute individual session, to discuss your work of crime at the Crime and Coffee Festival, Cardiff Library.

Caroline will be focussing on crime fiction, and the sessions are open to all writers, at any stage of the writing process.

“a rare opportunity to talk about your submission face to face with a professional editor – indicative of the nurture and support Honno give to their authors throughout the publishing process and beyond.” Alison Layland, author of Someone Else’s Conflict

Caroline Oakley is the editor/publisher at Honno. She was Editorial Director, Orion Books, publishing crime fiction (including Ian Rankin), SF & Fantasy (including Michael Moorcock and Tricia Sullivan) and general fiction and non-fiction (including Nick Middleton and Mark Todd).
