Sarah Elliott reflects on her day at the UK Ghost Story Festival, finding it to be an inspiring space—despite differences. “When different becomes the norm, it creates a safe space for so many people,” she says. “We felt at home.”
Every Friday, we meet a member of the BFS and peer deep into their soul (or, at least, a form they filled out). This week, we celebrate the release of Eliza Chan’s debut novel with her, celebrating all things Asian fantasy, and hearing how animation can be great inspiration for world-building as a writer.
