World-class writers, exclusive venues and London’s toughest interviewers

15 March 2016

Ministry of Stories, a writing charity in Hoxton, puts Charlie Higson, Sophie Kinsella and Laura Dockrill under pressure as the young writers from their after school workshops take the lead in an exclusive ‘in conversation’ event.

Grown-ups can now experience the magic of the award winning Ministry of Stories – the writing charity co-founded by author Nick Hornby – with a new series of events ‘The Ministry of Stories Presents’.

Kicking of the series are authors Charlie Higson, Sophie Kinsella and Laura Dockrill talking about childhood, at Penguin Random House.

To celebrate the launch, audience members will receive two free glasses of wine with every ticket purchased. All proceeds from the event go back into supporting writing projects at the Ministry.
