A NEW director has been appointed to lead the University of Winchester Writers’ Conference.
Children’s author, creative writing lecturer and newspaper columnist Judith Heneghan, pictured, will head up the prestigious event, which in recent years has attracted speakers such as the creator of Downton Abbey Lord Julian Fellowes and Sir Terry Pratchett.
The previous director, Barbara Large, has retired after founding the conference more than three decades ago with the aim of inspiring emerging talent and connecting readers with writers.
The conference is now attended by hundreds of aspiring authors every year.
