Treats to come

When I moved to this coast in Kent, I fell in with a warm, vibrant writing community and can’t wait to let you know what is coming up for me in the next couple of months.

On Monday 13 January, 2020, I am looking forward to returning to read alongside Isabel Rogers at WINCHESTER LOOSE MUSE: 8pm. This event celebrates the best of women’s writing and I’m deeply honoured to be invited. I’ll pay my respects to Jane Austen in Winchester Cathedral again when I’m there.

On Saturday 25 January 2020, I’m off to Deal, Kent for a poetry reading at 6.30pm in the Deal Bookshop along with Christopher Hopkins, Maggie Harris, Derek Sellen and Mary Anne Smith with Angela Dye as our host. With luck, Angie will read some of her marvellous poems too. This is part of a chain of launch events for Christopher’s latest book The Shape of a Tulip Bird and we’re all delighted to be involved. Please join us. 


On Thursday 6 February, 2020, 6.30pm, Word of Mouth #Whitstable will be a GREAT BIG OPEN MIC OF LOVE in honour of St Valentine’s Day.

Everybody is welcome to read for up to FIVE MINUTES and your time in the limelight can have an Un-Valentine’s flavour if you like. There are many kinds of love & we can explore and honour them all in prose, poetry, non-fiction, drama, memoir and music. As ever, this is a FREE EVENT and the lovely, licensed Umbrella Café will be open.

Here is a visual prompt if you’d like one…
