    SATURDAY 8 FEBRUARY.  Hove Library. 10.50am-1pm 

    You Should Never Give Up!

    Siobhan Curham will share all she’s learned about carving out a career as a writer, through the hard times and the good, and answer your questions about the writing, publishing and self-publishing process.

    After the publication of her first four books, Siobhan was dropped by her publisher. She thought her career as a writer was over but then self-published a novel for young adults, which went on to win a national book award – the first self published book to do so. That novel ended up going to auction with eight publishers bidding for it, thus re-igniting her career.  In the last 20 years, Siobhan has had almost 30 books published, for adults, young adults and children.

    Siobhan Curham is an award-winning author, ghost writer, content writer and editor. Her latest book for young adults, Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow, was nominated for the 2019 Carnegie Medal and has been shortlisted for the Lancashire Book of the Year Award, the James Reckitt Hull Award, the Southern Schools Book Award, and the Warwickshire Book Award.
