The second series of Grantchester will start filming in July for transmission on ITV in early 2016. 

I will be running a creative writing course at Dartington in August:


At the Edinburgh Book Festival I will be chairing sessions with Joanne Harris, Sarah Hall, Lucy Wood, Bernard O'Donoghue, Maureen Freely, Rosamund Bartlett, Elif Shafak and Terry Waite
