We’re pleased to host our Bookmark’d event again this year, albeit in a slightly different format to last year.
Taking place in Sun Pier House on Sunday, October 11, we have a selection of authors and publishers who can read and discuss their work with visitors in the intimacy of their own table space, located in between the cafe gallery and the main speakers gallery.
The cafe is open from 10am with free entry, and Bookmark’d will run until approximately 5.30pm.
Authors and publishers taking part are:
Urbane Publications is a new and exciting independent publisher dedicated to publishing the books you want to read – hip, contemporary, groundbreaking fiction and fascinating non-fiction designed to entertain, excite, and engage.
Wordsmithery is an independent literary arts organisation and micro-publisher run by Barry and Sam Fentiman-Hall. They specialise in literature events and projects and began micro-publishing in 2013, with a creative writing anthology – City without a head. They have since published plays and another anthology.

Members on the book stall will be happy to give you details of the group. Local published authors Lin Tidy, Judith Northwood-Boorman and Susan Pope, all Medway Mermaids, will also be showing some of their own publications on the day.
