Halloween Tricks & Treats: From Fact to Fiction that Fizzles

Appearing on October 31, 2020 at


Time: 11.30am – 12.20pm

Bestselling children’s author Michelle Harrison is well-known for her magical worlds and affinity with the number thirteen, black cats, wishes, curses and secrets. Her love of spooky stories continues to inspire her work including the Thirteen Treasures series, One Wish, and her recent series about the Widdershins sisters, A Pinch of Magic, which enchants children (and grown-ups) the world over. But how does she turn her research from real-life locations and folklore into fiction that captivates? And how can she inspire you to do the same?

  • Researching traditional folklore and mythology – where to begin?
  • Infusing witchcraft into your own story
  • Building suspense with mystery – how to thread clues and adventure into your plot
  • Creating magical worlds
  • Writing courageous protagonists

Tickets are £10 for Michelle’s event only, or day passes for all events are available for £30. For the full line up, more information and to book, click here.
