The opening events are upon us!

We do hope you’ll be joining us for a long weekend of literary inspired events, with poetry hunting and workshop, reading, drama, sci-fi investigating, writers’ games and a book launch all on offer.

ME4Writers will be hiding the PoetryMon cards across the towns tonight, in readiness for tomorrow – check out the clues on their website when they appear and see how many you can find.

Maggie Harris will be in residence at Rochester Community Hub and Library tomorrow night to read from her moving and resonant work, then at Strood library on Saturday morning for a poetry workshop. Both events can be booked on 01634 337799.

Our headline event for the weekend is A NIght at the Theatre, featuring actress and WOW founder, Emma Dewhurst, in BBC Prize winner Sarah Hehir’s ‘Bang Up‘, together with the relaunch of 17percent’s She Writes programme, showcasing What’s Through The Door, a set of three short dark comedies inspired by an HG Wells short story.

Scriptwriter and actor, Paul Doust, has been drafted in by Emma, along with a gifted cast, to bring to life Sarah’s award winning radio play, broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in August.

To book your tickets for this truly excting, one off event, visit our Eventbrite page here.


Aliens. Siblings reunited. And some inappropriate games playing… She Writes is back and it’s bigger and better than ever! Read more about 17%, its cast and writers here.

The Skywatcher Investigation takes place on Sunday afternoon and is shaping up to be one of the most unusual events we’ve ever staged, with the creative genius of Roy Smith at the helm.  To book tickets, visit the Eventbrite page here. And keep an eye out for this chap, he seems a bit lost! Chocks away!


On Monday night, join Philip Kane for an informal night of writers’ games in the Good Intent from 8pm (no booking required) and limber up your writing hand for the rest of the week.

City Without a Head is Tuesday’s must-see/hear event. Join ME4Writers at Ye Arrow to launch their much anticipated study of Medway.  Also starting at 8pm and also free, no booking required.

Our Other Worlds, Other Voices themed mixed media exhibition will be open from Saturday, 5th at the Rochester Community Hub and Library.

We look forward to seeing you very soon!
