The Bloody Scotland Podcasts Part Two: Alison Belsham - Pitch Perfect...



For the second of our Bloody Scotland podcasts Ali spoke to writer Alison Belsham to learn about the Pitch Perfect strand of the festival. A previous winner herself who is now involved in the selection process, Alison is perfectly placed to talk about the importance of pitching a novel or idea and just what it can offer, her experience of being a writer, and offers up plenty of practical advice to those hoping to follow in her path.

Alison also talks about her own writing, including the current Detective Lexi Bennett series, as well as the Edinburgh Women's Fiction Festival, which is a new literary festival celebrating writing for, by, and about women and which will be on 6th - 7th October, and which Alison is heavily involved with.


It's another podcast which will be of interest to readers, and writers, of all genres, but particularly crime.


And Bloody Scotland is on between 15th - 17th September. Tickets are on sale now.
