Brave New World

The world of publishing has changed dramatically in a generation. Two local writers talk about their journey to publication and what it takes to be a successful author in 2018. With Kate Nicholas.


10.00am Saturday 17th February 2018


Simeon Courtie

Simeon’s humorous travel memoir, The Long and Whining Road, recounted his year driving a camper van around the world with his family. Self-published, it won five international awards including Grand Prize Winner at the London Book Festival. He pitched his first novel to agents at the end of 2017 and is writing his second.

Philip S. Davies

After fifteen years as a Vicar, Revd Philip S. Davies is now a full-time author of fantasy adventure novels for young people. He has Chaired the U.K. Association of Christian Writers, and speaks regularly at local primary and secondary schools, churches and other groups.

Kate Nicholas

Kate Nicholas is a Christian author and preacher with over thirty years’ experience as an editor and media commentator. She has written for titles ranging from The Observer to Ideal Home and was formerly global communications chief for Christian aid agency World Vision, but it took a cancer diagnosis to turn her into an author, with her best-selling autobiography Sea Changed.
