A Fowey writer is generously offering to give illustrated talks to groups around Cornwall completely free of charge.

The talk, titled, 'Captain Scott's expedition from the novelist's perspective' will be presented by Richard Jopling, a novelist who spends his time between Fowey and Shropshire.

Mr Jopling penned the novel, 'Had We Lived: After Captain Scott', in which he recreated the life of Apsley Cherry Garrard, a member of the Scott expedition team, and a man who lived his life weighed down by the knowledge he may have missed an opportunity to save the intrepid explorer from an icy grave.

As a celebration of the centenary year of the 'Terra Nova', the polar expedition ship that carried Captain Scott on his final fateful journey, Mr Jopling hopes to deliver an illustrated talk about the expedition and some of the issues surrounding writing a novel on the subject.

He said: "This talk will be of interest to any group interested in knowing more about the expedition and also to reading groups and those interested in creative writing."

The talk is being offered without charge to groups in Cornwall.For further information call 07855 857 622 or e-mail to rjopling@hotmail.co.uk
