Writers' HQ is heading to Portsmouth to run their famous one-day writing retreats. So why is Pompey such a haven for writers?
Poppy runs the Portsmouth Writers' Retreats and is a writer of short stories and nonfiction with a novel in the pipe-line. She’s studying for an MA in creative writing at the University of Chichester. She's been long listed for the Bristol Prize and the Bath Flash Fiction Award. Her first book of children's nonfiction will be published by Summersdale in spring 2018.
