We’re back at Rochester Library cafe again this month.
Saturday, February 23rd is the date for your diary, from 10.30am – 2.30pm. If you want to arrive a little earlier, you can find me in Miss Twinkleton’s from around 9.30am for a chat, before we head over.
See you then!
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!
Saturday, November 24 from 11-3 in Room 11 at Medway Adult Education, Rochester Community Hub.
Writing can be a lonely occupation so this new national initiative seeks to ensure that writers not only crack on with their writing but also get a chance to socialise with other writers.
Write for 2 hours, then spend 2 hours sharing your work, getting feedback, brainstorming or just enjoying the company of your fellow writers over a hot drink.
Tea and coffee – including decaf – will be available on tap (honesty pot available) and the space is fully accessible.
It’s free but please book a space here so we know how many to expect. See you there!
