Following on from the hugely successful regional writers’ group networking day hosted by Ormskirk Writers’ and Literary Society in 2009, Skelmersdale Writers’ Group is delighted to host the regional networking day for 2009. A great opportunity for writers in the region to share their experiences and publicise their work and their forthcoming events.
We are also pleased to offer the region’s writers the opportunity to get an in depth view of Lancaster Litfest and its publishing imprint Flax Books.
Information about Lancaster Litfest:
Andy Darby the Artistic Director of litfest (www.litfest.org) will talk and take questions about the range of litfest's work as a literature development agency, publisher and festival based in Lancaster in the North West of England.
Litfest has been Lancaster's annual literature festival since 1978, and now runs literary events through the year as well as occasional writing projects on an ad hoc basis. We support and publish upcoming writers in the North West of England through our Flax imprint and are about to open a poetry bookshop as part of our new space at The Storey Creative Industries Centre.
This year's festival runs from the 16th to 25th October 2009 and features a fantastic range of novelists, short story writers and poets, find out more at www.litfest.org or call 01524 62166 for a brochure.
