Everyone has a novel in her, apparently! Is yours a historical one? Would you like to give it a kick start by attending an event at which you could get advice from novelist V.M. Whitworth and others?
I belong to a very lively network of midwives and academics who work on the history of midwifery: the De Partu History of Childbirth Research Group. The Chaiir, Janette Allotey, has put together an event to be held at the wonderful venue of Crewe Hall on 23 August 2013, with the option of attending as a day visitor or staying overnight. If you look on the website you will find out more and be able to book! The event is aimed at academic historians, especially historians of childbirth and nursing, but all are welcome.
