I'm dead chuffed to be involved with an exciting new Festival for North West writers which is starting this year!
The Word – the first one-day writing festival for Lancashire writers – is confirmed for 22 SEPTEMBER 2012
- and is at the beautiful ASTLEY HALL in Chorley.
Astley Hall is a wonderful venue that is sure to get the creative juices flowing for anybody who appreciates good writing. The organisers are speaking to some superb writers who will host some fantastic events throughout the day. Already confirmed are award-winning author Jenn Ashworth and Kindle chart-topping Kerry Wilkinson, plus Ra Page from Comma Press and short story specialist and editor Claire Massey!
More details to come soon so keep an eye on The Word Festival blog.
The event is aimed at fiction and non-fiction authors, copywriters, ghostwriters, journalists, editors and lecturers – add any other category here if you don’t fit into any of those!
The Word Festival will have the run of the coach house, which houses the excellent Cafe Ambio and is situated next to the walled garden. Astley Hall will also be open and FREE on festival day, so writers can take a peek at this Elizabethan manor when they’re all written out.
Put 22 September in your diary now. Tickets will be on sale shortly.
