Note for people not coming here via the link-up of Eroticon write-ups: Some of the links in this post will take you to websites which may be deemed NSFW. Gosh, how to sum up last weekend at Eroticon? To be honest, for me, “lifechanging” would not be exaggerating. Not only did I spend the weekend with a fabulous group of

‘A Ship on Her Beam Ends’

Sandra Lindsey/ March 22, 2019/ Conference, On writing, Thoughts/ 2 comments

Way back in 2016 I wrote a short story, Man of War, for Manifold Press‘s Jane Austen inspired anthology A Certain Persuasion. When this anthology was launched at Queer Company 2, all contributing authors were invited to write a short article, related to the story we had written, for the conference programme. As my story was set aboard a Royal Navy

Eroticon Meet & Greet 2019!

Sandra Lindsey/ February 23, 2019/ Conference/ 6 comments

I’ve only been twice before (2015 & 2017), but Eroticon is definitely one of my favourite events, and I’d recommend it to anyone writing about adult relationships. It’s not just the content, it’s the people, but also there’s business-focused sessions you might not expect, and a wonderful community of people with such rich & varied life experiences that it’s a

Eroticon or bust?

Sandra Lindsey/ March 8, 2017/ Conference/ 0 comments

Oh gosh… Eroticon… Well in the immediate aftermath of arriving home, I did write up a post about things I brought home from Eroticon, but really it’s about so much more than that. I mean, it started *months* ago! I couldn’t afford to go to any big cons last year, so when the news came through to my inbox that

Ten Things I Took Home from Eroticon

Sandra Lindsey/ March 6, 2017/ Conference/ 6 comments

So. Yes. Eroticon. Wow. As you can tell from the one-word sentences, I’m still rather in the midst of its effects. Over on that there Twitter (well, on her blog really but I saw it in a tweet), @writtenbyjenny has created a meme of “10 things I took home from Eroticon”, so while my thoughts are still gathering for longer

LGBT History Festival

Sandra Lindsey/ February 22, 2017/ Conference/ 0 comments

A few weeks ago I discovered that Shrewsbury – not far from me – was holding a festival in celebration of LGBT History Month. Officially called “Back In Time 2” (on account of it being the 2nd such festival held in Shrewsbury), it was a lovely mixture of formal and semi-formal presentations, informal mingling, evening entertainment and films, as well as

Best value £9.50 I’ve spent this year

Sandra Lindsey/ April 22, 2016/ Conference/ 0 comments

I’ve just got home from Abergavenny Writing Festival It’s a new event this year, and it’s a good one! Most writing-focused events I’ve been to have been ticketed for the whole event, which is great because of the atmosphere you get and the sense of it being a whole event. This festival is ticketed per event (or at least, this

UK Meet part 2

Sandra Lindsey/ September 18, 2015/ Conference

Off on adventures with Husband this weekend, so thought I’d best scribble down some more of my thoughts about last weekend before I forget them! Sunday was a less-cram-packed day than Saturday. I wandered up to the Marriott for Quite Early, as we had been warned in advance that the Bristol Half Marathon was on that day and there would

UK Meet 2015 – half way through!

Sandra Lindsey/ September 13, 2015/ Conference

Time seems to be flying, but in a wonderful way. UK Meet is still as friendly as ever, even with sometimes the drifting my quite numbers of people* Things done? Pirate walk round the centre of Bristol on Friday evening. Very interesting, and led by the fascinating Pirate Pete. As he made sure we knew, he was only able to
