About Writing, Life and Writing About Life

Final preparations are under way and the excitement is building. Next Saturday will be the 3rd Charmouth Literary Festival – a free one day event for people who write. This year we have responded to those who were frustrated by not being able to attend sessions which clashed, so all events are held at the same venue – the St Andrews Village Hall on Lower Sea Lane. There is parking to be found just after the hall on the right in St Andrews Road car park, or you can park on The Street (space permitting) and walk along.
The festival will be particularly exciting for me as it marks the launch of my second book – Be An Author. This is a book to inspire fledgling writers to take the step into publication and sharing their words with the world. In it I aim to debunk many of the myths that have grown up around the publishing world, and give an insight into how life is for the average author starting out today.
Other items on the bill include sessions on Flash Fiction, Writing a Memorable Memoir and a Poetry Workshop. There is an optional short writing excursion at lunchtime and the local writers group Jurassic Writers will be hosting an interactive writing session over the lunch break. All in all a fun packed day for anyone who enjoys putting pen to paper!
Hope to see you there. If you’re not able to come along, you can still join in with our Flash Fiction competition. It only costs £1 to enter and all proceeds will go directly to support next year’s festival, allowing us to keep it free for everyone to attend. You can find details of the competition here on the festival website and the closing date is Saturday 8th September.
