About us

Paperboat was founded in 2018 by two book group friends with a shared passion for bringing groups of like-minded people together to have fun with words.  Now Paperboat continues on its voyage with Emma Milne-White as sole navigator. Emma hosts regular literary events through her bookshop, and also reviews books for LoveReading.co.uk. She enjoys writing poetry when not busy reading or talking books. Our first event, "How Stories Find Us" with Jeremy Gavron, was a sell-out and achieved 100% positive reviews from the writers who took part. Our last event was with Claire Fuller who won the Costa Prize for fiction this year.

Connecting renowned authors with new writers...

As a bookshop owner, I'm always amazed at how willing authors are to share their writing techniques and tips.  Paperboat gives me a great opportunity to connect aspiring writers with published authors for inspiring workshops in some great locations.  Come & join us!
