Whitstable + writing = sounds good to me, so I’m happy to publicise the launch of an anthology by the Whitstable Women Writers on Saturday. Here are the details:
The Whitstable Women Writers, a group of local creatives with a passion for the written word, will publish their anthology, Place, on the 6th October 2012.
The group, which has been involved in the Whitstable Oyster Festival, public readings of their work, open-mic nights and writing workshops in the town, have pulled together an eclectic mix of essays and poems on what place (or plaice!) means to each contributor. There is something for everyone as styles include humorous poetry, children’s fiction, chick-lit as well as literary poetry and prose (with some mild adult content).
Brought together by enthusiasm for language and a compulsion to write they meet monthly when members bring along work-in-progress for constructive criticism and group discussion.
The group, founded ten years ago, has gone from strength to strength. This is the Whitstable Women Writers’ first anthology but with the volume of first-class writing being turned out by the group it certainly won’t be their last.
The launch party will be held at 7.30pm on Saturday 6th October 2012 at the Whitstable Labour Club in Belmont Road and will also feature the Horsebridge Singers and an open-mic session.
