As a freelance journalist Jane Wenham-Jones has written for The Guardian, The Daily Express, The Sunday Express, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun and numerous women’s magazines. She is a regular contributor to Woman’s Weekly, and has a monthly advice column in Writing Magazine.
Jane also broadcasts on radio, works the after-dinner circuit, talks to writers groups and conferences, and has worked as a celebrity speaker for P&O. She has hosted the Romantic Novel Association Awards – the annual awards for the best in Romantic Fiction – for the last eight years, and presents many events at literary events and book festivals across the UK and abroad. She is particularly skilled at chairing panels and has been “in conversation with” hundreds of top authors and celebrities.
A lively and energetic speaker, she gives humorous after-dinner talks and lectures on her life as a writer, her (sometimes hairy) experiences of the buy-to-let market – which her first novel was based on - the art of self-publicity and achieving personal goads either as simple entertainment or for inspirational/motivational purposes. Engagements have included award ceremonies, charity groups, dining circles, writing conferences and the Federation of Small Businesses.
Is there a book in you? (And should it stay there?)
This highly entertaining talk charts Jane’s sometimes torturous road to publication and the ups and downs of life as a jobbing writer.
