Carys and Seb (as the minimum two requested) will be going to the English PEN Summit in Farringdon on the 10th July to represent York PEN, and hopefully network with some like-minded students from around the country. Anyone can go, so if you’d like to come, please email either of us. If you’re still not convinced, you get free lunch.
There will be talks from 11.30-4.30 from Helen Norman Soderfield, Acting Director of English PEN, and from Kings College, and workshops about how best to progress the society. Anyone looking to help run the society next year will find this particularly useful, and it would be great if other societies knew a couple of people beyond Carys and myself, at least as familiar names.
