Many thanks to you all for attending which again was a big turnout plus a huge welcome to four new writers, I hope we can support you in what you require.
Faversham Literary Festival – Jane has very kindly offered four tickets to the events pictured below, to our group. Paul is having the Michael Rosen one so if any of you would like to go to the others please let me know and I will give them to you on Thursday evening.
The event at The Beacon is coming along with almost twenty authors booked so far. If you know of any authors or artists, as we have lots of wall space to fill, who would like to be involved then please get them to contact me. There will be live music, I am looking for buskers so there is some background music in the sitting and eating area. I have a couple of wellbeing practitioners but could do with some more, please. The Write By The Sea authors will be in a group together plus I am thinking of having a reading corner so you can read parts of your books to people. If you have not registered for this then please let me know and I can send you the form. Chris and Liz from The Chambers are doing the bar and food.
Shakespeare Evening – 23rd April, we will read out what we have written under the heading of what would he think about his birthday today, what presents would he have today, imagine you are him. Or even a comparisen of then and now for his birthday.
As the event last year at The Chambers was so good they are keen to have another one so that will be a Book Festival Fringe Event again on Sunday the 18th October from 11am until 6pm. This will consist of three separate areas downstairs for crime, sci-fi and can we have an idea for the third, I would like children’s authors but we do not appear to have that many local or even in Kent that I know.
Our writing task for March will be any of our work, so we can get feedback from everyone. This is of course optional.
Andy got back to me about the Anthology and competition so we will discuss this at the next group meeting. Please think about your stories about ghostly goings-on in Folkestone if you would like them to be added to the book. Also a ghostly cover photo plus someone to illustrate inside in parts. Or even drawings of each place that is written about.
Thursday is our event for this month, a Poetry Workshop for Valentine Day. Thank you all for helping to publicise all our events.
The link for the publication event is on Facebook but please share also our events and dates.
