Circle Meeting, Guest Speaker Helga Jensen
April 3, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Helga Jensen is an award-winning Welsh/Danish best-selling author and journalist. Her debut novel was a winning entry in the 2017 Montegrappa First Fiction competition at Dubai’s Emirates Literary Festival. Her debut was also a contender for the coveted 2021 Joan Hessayon Award for new writers.
Helga’s second romantic comedy, A Scandinavian Summer, went straight to number one on the Amazon Kindle charts for Danish travel on its publication day.
Each of Helga’s books has a Welsh setting, as she strongly believes that Wales should be promoted in fiction.
Helga holds a BA Hons in English Literature and Creative Writing, along with a Creative Writing MA from Bath Spa University. She is about to start the last year of a PhD at Swansea University.
Her talk will range across having Wales as a setting in books, introducing slightly older characters in books and the publishing process and how she managed to get published.
The meeting will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 3 April 2024. Everyone is welcome.
The meeting venue is the Taliesin Arts Centre (downstairs from the main auditorium), Swansea University Singleton Campus, Swansea SA2 8QD. There will also be a zoom link for those who can’t attend in person.
