Join in workshops and activities, make connections and build networks
In addition to our annual BookFest Event, at which all local writers and illustrators have an opportunity to showcase their work, alongside workshops and interactive activities, we run monthly Open Mic sessions with guest speakers and contributions from local writers, and also Author Presentations, monthly sessions at which individual authors, playwrights and poets can present their work.
