Quick and Quirky Questions

Quick & Quirky Questions is a regular monthly feature on the Autumn Voices website.

Each month, we’ll ask a member of the Autumn Voices community – and maybe one or two well-known names and faces – some (you guessed it) quick and quirky questions. There will be six regular questions that we’ll ask every person, and depending on what themes we’re championing at Autumn Voices or activities we’re involved in, we might throw in one or two extra. The responses will be published each month along with a little bit about who they are.

To keep track of who our interview subjects are each month, follow us on Facebook or Twitter and look for the hashtag #QQQ
