Daphne du Maurier and Q: Finished by Another, led by Polly Greyson
Saturday 27 January, 10am-3pm, St Endellion Church
What is it like to finish writing another author’s novel? Writer and researcher Polly Gregson will explore the creative relationship between Daphne du Maurier and Sir Arthur Quiller Couch, starting with their co-created novel Castle Dor. The novel is a captivating re-imagining of Tristan and Iseult set around Fowey.
Participants will be invited to get involved in a creative writing exercise related to this theme. Bring a picnic lunch.
