Hello from a very sunny Edinburgh, where we’ve decamped to the Edinburgh International Book Festival to begin work on the second part of our Writers’ Inner Voices study, part of the Conversations With Ourselves strand of events. For the next two-and-a-bit weeks, we’ll be interviewing some of the writers on this year’s bill and reporting from the festival on the findings of our research into inner voice and literary creativity.
The Conversations With Ourselves series of events got off to a fabulous start today with “The Voices in Our Head”, a panel exploring the creation of characters in fiction through the prism of inner voice, with writers Nathan Filer, Edward Carey and Matthew Quick, chaired by our very own Charles Fernyhough. You can view a précis of today’s discussions here.
