Festival of Romance 2012

The Festival of Romance took place in Bedford 16-18 November 2012. I attended the Awards Ball and next morning took part in a workshop run by Sally Quilford on writing Pocket Novels. At the Awards Ball I was fortunate to be sharing a table with the Romaniacs, all writers on the RNA's New Writers' Scheme. Except that one no longer is. She won her spurs that evening. So congralulations Celia Anderson! A few of the photos I took that evening are here. My apologies for the red eye. My camera has a facility for avoiding it, if only I knew how it worked! I won't post names. You all know who you are!


  1. Great photos and write-up Maggi and we were delighted to have you share our excitement. I think Celia is still absorbing the news.
    You have captured the spirit perfectly.

  2. Pleasure to meet you and the girls on the Friday night. Hope you enjoyed the rest of the festival. I left Bedford on Saturday lunchtime somewhat reluctantly. However, I did get home on Saturday in time for Strictly!
