Are you looking forward to Saturday’s Golden Jubilee Event? I know I am! Our first panel of the day will be discussing Environmentalism in SFFH with Kevan Manwaring, PS Livingstone, and Caroline Hardaker. There are some really interesting works in this area just now and I can’t wait to hear what our panel has to say about it.
Kevan Manwaring, PhD, is a writer of fantasy & non-fiction exploring ecology, fantastika, and the bardic tradition. He is a Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing, and lives on the Jurassic Coast. Author website: www.kevanmanwaring.co.uk
Bio: PS Livingstone writes epic contemporary fantasy and is the author of The Transcendent Saga series, as well as numerous short stories. She works as a ghostwriter and editor, suiting her reputation as a renowned grammar fiend. Pamela lives in Glasgow with her partner and three cats, and can often be found in her allotment, usually covered in mud.
Caroline Hardaker lives in the northeast of England and writes quite a lot of things. Caroline’s debut poetry collection, Bone Ovation (2017), and her first full length collection, Little Quakes Every Day (2020) were both published by Valley Press. Caroline’s debut novel, Composite Creatures, was published by Angry Robot in April 2021, and is nominated for Debut of the Year at The Kitschies 2022.
