I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

Rob Ryan
Feedback From 2015 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.

A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.
