I am over the moon to be writer in residence at Chalkwall Hall- Southend on Sea as part of The Essex Book Festival. My residency will start from the 19th March and ends on the 27th March. Polish Independence in 1918 nestles in the chambers of thought and serves as potential content for my writing. A new area to explore… https://essexbookfestival.org.uk/event/a-soviet-childhood/
