Event details

Writers in Conversation features some of today’s best fiction writers, poets, non-fiction writers and playwrights reading from their work and talking about their writing lifestyle - how characters take shape and where ideas come from.


Led by creative writing lecturers at the University of Southampton, the event takes place in Nuffield Kitchen, helping to create an evening that is relaxed, engaging and intelligent, yet informal.


Horatio Clare is the author of two memoirs, Running for the Hills and Truant; three books of nature and travel, A Single Swallow, Down to the Sea In Ships, and Orison for a Curlew; a novella, The Prince's Pen; an anthology, Sicily Through Writers' Eyes, and most recently a novel for children, Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot, a Sunday Times children's book of the year. Variously a journalist, teacher, radio producer, lecturer and broadcaster, Horatio began life as a sheep-dog substitute, herding flocks in the Black Mountains of south Wales. His work has been listed for numerous prizes, winning the Somerset Maugham award, the Foreign Press Association award and the Standford-Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2015. Horatio contributes to numerous international publications and radio programmes, with regular essays for the Financial Times and From Our Own Correspondent. He is currently lecturing in creative writing at Liverpool John Moores.
