Bloggers wanted for two Coronation Street events

If you're reading this and you're planning on going to either of these two Coronation Street events, do please let us know as we'd love to hear from you.

The first one is TRANSCRIPT - The development of trans and gay characters, from script to screen.

Join Coronation Street Writers Damon Rochefort and Ben Tagoe, Coronation Street Actor Bruno Langley (Todd Grimshaw), former Coronation Street and Cucumber Actress Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper), and Cucumber Actress Bethany Black as they discuss the concept and development of transgender characters in soaps and how the story moves from script to screen.

Brought to you by Manchester Pride in partnership with ITV, the event will be held on Tuesday 25 August, 7pm at Black Dog Ball Room, NWS (New Wakefield Street), Manchester.
Book your seat here.

And the second one is the All TV is Soap event at this year's Edinburgh International TV Festival on Friday August 28th 2015. 

Corrie producer Stuart Blackburn and Sally Ann Matthews, who played Jenny Bradley, will be speaking at the All TV is Soap session. 

Ex-Corrie archivist and scriptwriter, author and BAFTA-winning Daran Little (who wrote The Road to Coronation Street) will also be speaking at the session. Daran now writes for EastEnders.

Find out more about the All TV is Soap session here.

If anyone attends either event and would like to blog about it for us afterwards, just a few paragraphs will do and any pics you might like to take, then please do get in touch.

I wouldn't be a suitable choice for the last one. Its probably a good idea to keep me as far away from Stuart Blackburn as possible.
