Music Writing  – with Zoë Howe

11.30am – 3.30pm (with an hour for lunch)

Zoë Howe (‘one of the UK’s great biographers’ – Dr Simon Warner, Text & Drugs & Rock ’n’ Roll) joins us fresh from launching her latest book Dayglo: The Poly Styrene Story here at Essex Writer’s House the night before  to run an entertaining music writing workshop for all levels. Themes to be discussed include interview techniques, research, classic music writing and dissecting what works (and what doesn’t), general tips and guidance and the revelation that nailing good practice will not only improve your output but can enrich everyday life in unexpected ways, and, yes, can even make you sexier. Genuinely. Sign up and find out more…

Writer, artist and musician Zoë Howe is the acclaimed author of eleven books, including rock biographies of artists such as Poly Styrene, The Slits, Wilko Johnson, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Stevie Nicks, Lee Brilleaux and Florence + The Machine to name a few. Her debut rock ’n’ roll novel Shine On, Marquee Moon was shortlisted for the Virginia Prize for Fiction. Zoë is also working with Poly Styrene’s daughter Celeste (her Dayglo co-author) on the documentary film I Am A Cliché (release TBC). Musically, Zoë has worked with Viv Albertine, Mick Jones, Steve Beresford, Yumi Hara, Charli XCX, Helen McCookeryBook, The Raincoats, The Plan, Platypus, Wobbly Lamps and others. www.zoehowe.com / www.zoehoweartist.com
