In March we ran a really successful Writers’ Day here at The Writers’ Place, Brighton. We’re delighted to announce that we are joining forces with Shoreham Wordfest to present another Writers’ Day on Sunday 29 September.

The venue is Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham-by-Sea and contributors include Sue Walker, Beth Miller, Umi Sinha, Laura Wilkinson, Amy Winchester, Eve Ainsworth, Adam Webb, and Amy Zamarripa Solis.
