BristolCon Fringe: September 2017 - Q&A

September 21st, 2017 · Comments

Finally for September we have the Q&A. Cheryl Morgan talked to Chloe about hitting people with big swords and her job in the heritage industry. She talked to Anna about epic poetry, studying ancient history, and whether she had any advice for Chloe about getting published. Then Justin Newland asked a philosophical question about history and we discovered that, with three historians on a panel, the discussion can go on for ever. Pete Sutton previewed this year's Bristol literary festivals.

BristolCon Fringe: September 2017 - Chloe Headdon

September 21st, 2017 · Comments

Our first reader for September was Chloe Headdon. Ever since she was little Chloe has wanted to be either a writer or a knight, so she now combines a bit of both. Chloe’s work is inspired by myths and legends, especially King Arthur, medieval history, and the British landscape. She is currently working on a young adult fantasy novel as well as other short stories. In her spare time, Chloe practises Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and can regularly be found fighting people twice her size with swords.

Chloe read from the first two chapters of her novel.
