There’s a new festival for Medway in the summer, in which writers and poets are more than welcome to take part.
Applications are now open for the Medway Open Studios & Arts Festival, to celebrate all creative communities and artists who live and work locally, and to promote a positive opinion of Medway as a creative hub. 2012 is its first year and organisers hope it will become an established annual festival.
The closing date is 20th April and there are some meet and greet sessions beforehand, if you wish to find out more about the festival and how it will work. These will be held at the Deaf Cat Cafe in Rochester High Street on the next three weekends:
Saturday 31st March (tomorrow) Saturday 7th April and Sunday 15th April, between 10am – 12noon.
The festival itself will take place between the 7th and 13th July. For guidelines and application details, find out more here.
