On Writing, Tech, and Other Loquacities

The collected works of Lana Brindley: writer, speaker, blogger


Many of the public talks I do are videoed. I’ll try and collect the videos here, although I can provide no guarantees that these videos will continue to work for any great length of time after the event (it’s up to the event organisers, not me). If you know of any videos that are missing from this collection, please let me know.
