"I feel I am now a Swanwickian (does that sound too Dickens?) When you have a gap, please invite me again. I felt at home."
Christopher Lee, opening night speaker 2014
"I want to thank you for inviting me to take part in Swanwick 66, which was fun and very rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed my whirlwind visit and meeting so many writers."
Shirley Blair, Commissioning Fiction Editor of The People's Friend, evening guest speaker 2014
"I arrived home exhausted but fizzing like champagne and aglow with the happiest of memories. Thank you so much, and all those who pampered me like a queen. So much love in the air, so healing. I could feel my beloved Deric close by."
Aileen Armitage, evening guest speaker 2014
"It’s so very easy to teach and speak at Swanwick because it’s not a gig, nor an event, it’s a chat amongst friends, as simple as that. The warmth and togetherness makes it the easiest place a writer could ever 'work' (because it never feels like work, I can promise you.)"
Simon Hall, guest speaker and tutor 2014
