Deryn at the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival

Deryn had a wonderful time at the 2014 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival.

Tiger Stone received its international launch featuring a fantastic Q&A with Deryn and Nic Low. Deryn also ran a cerpen mini (micro fiction) writing workshop for the festival’s youth program which was attended by enthusiastic young writers from several local high schools.
