Live Blogging from Milford: Thursday 14th September – 10.00 p.m.

Liz Williams

We are now well into the Writers’ Tears whisky, having just gone through the Milford Marketing Meeting. Where to send your precious piece? What to do? What to write next? The Milford MM collective hive mind will tell you and give you chocolate. We have now come to the end of the workshop: Thousand Yard Stares all round. Outside, Wales is being particularly wet. There are plans for tomorrow involving chips, pubs, and strong liquor. Milford 2017 is complete; we have all bonded. What an exceptional experience this has been, and every year brings something new – this time, HIT training. Not only are our brains expanded; our muscles are too.

We are in the library, all sitting together, people chatting about all sorts of stuff. There is real warm feeling now. I went around the room, taking photos, and feel as if in one week these people have become special to me. They have. Even if some of us drift apart (I hope not), we will always have this week. This amazing, productive week where we got to know one another, learned more of who we are, shared personal stories, and more importantly shared our writing, and our hopes for how we see ourselves as writer developing. It’s been an incredible week, and once again I feel fortunate to be a part of Milford.
