April’s Write Then Socialise will take place during our annual Terry Pratchett celebration, The Turtle Moves, from 10am-1pm in Rochester Community Hub cafe.
The workshops will be in Room 11 at the Rochester hub, and parents who wish to write while their children are crafting are welcome in there instead. The Juvenile Crafters’ Guild runs from 10.30am-12.30pm
We’re also delighted that writer Kerry Hancock is joining us in Room 11 between 11am-12pm. Born and raised in Medway, her life long dream of becoming an author has been realised with the release of her first book ‘The Task’ due this year. A fantasy adventure for young and old, it’s the first in a trilogy.
Kerry will share her story of how she was picked up by her publisher and do a Q&A on the publishing process.
A World Building Workshop using examples from the Discworld will follow between 1.30-3.30pm. See here for details.
There’s a nationwide initiative to make sure writers write and don’t get lonely while doing it. So, the first Rochester Write Then Socialise event is booked!
We’re fresh from our first activity of the year, the successful Creative Care Expo in Maidstone, where practical experience confirmed once again that arts and culture play a significant part in wellbeing.
