Since our launch in May 2005, The Write Fantastic's diary has seen over 60 engagements, ranging from library and bookshop events, talks to local writers' groups and contributions to literary festivals, to teaching creative writing.

We've found readers' appetite and enthusiasm for fantasy fiction to be boundless, from epic tales of swords and sorcery to gritty urban myth. It's been our pleasure to help ensure that no one is missing out on all the wonderful reading currently on offer.

To celebrate TWF's fifth year, we're welcoming Kari Sperring, Ian Whates, Liz Williams and Freda Warrington to the team as Mark Chadbourn and Stan Nicholls take a step back from our month-to-month programme.

We’re also planning our first day-long event, to be held at the Jacqueline Du Pré Building, St Hilda's College, Oxford on May 8th 2010. (£15/£12 students).

We're inviting friends and colleagues to share their insights and recommendations in a wide-ranging programme. Guests confirmed so far are Stephen Deas, Ben Jeapes, Geoff Ryman, Mike Shevdon and Ian Watson. The day will also see the launch of TWF's anniversary anthology of original stories.

See The Write Fantastic's website for further details on our guests, the programme, the venue and local facilities, travel and how to book, by post or online.

Further updates will follow.

Hi! This is Tad Williams. Please excuse the interruption to your regularly scheduled bloggery. People here have mentioned my work, or love fantasy and science fiction, so I just wanted to pop in and say that anyone interested in reading a chapter from my new book, SHADOWRISE, should drop an email to:


and we'll send one to you. We won't do anything rotten with your email address, either, we promise.

Thanks – Tad
