Alison is a reader, writer and editor – not often seen without her nose in a book. ChipLitFest is the perfect weekend for her: the opportunity to discover new writers, to become passionate about new areas (she has her eye on hags and alternative funerals this year), and to buy more books to cram on to her groaning bookshelves. She particularly enjoys interviewing our guest writers, who are endlessly fascinating.
