Fiction for Fun

Fiction for fun

Is a celebration of fiction
for local published and unpublished authors
including creative writing groups
and we would love you to join us.

We will be at the Grosvenor Arms Hotel, Shaftesbury 
March 22-25  2023

enjoying a week of readings, discussions, speakers on all subjects from children’s writing to crime fiction, from historical sagas to  contemporary dramas, from memoir through poetry to scripts.

We are beginning to line up a programme to cater for all;

Morning coffee and cake sessions, learning how to start writing, how to improve, and how to think about publishing. Afternoon themed sessions along with workshops. And interactive and informal

Evening sessions.

In the pipeline already is a speaker from real crime to give a true slant on crime writing, a playwright to speak about the art of

dramatic writing and a look at writing for children.

There will be opportunities to read from your own work or have it read for you. The chance to sell your work or to have a go at putting pen to paper and taking it further.

We wish to invite you to be involved in some way;
Speaking, reading, engaging with the local writing community.
Do contact us further for more details or to suggest a topic

And the cost of this amazing celebration? Absolutely free of charge!What could be better? If you love reading, writing fiction or wish to give it a try this is for you.

register your interest and come along.
