Shoreham Wordfest

Hello and welcome to my blog. It's lovely to see you again.

Shoreham Beach is a soggy, windy and slightly inaccessible place at the moment. The weather is set to change but the footbridge will remain closed for another 4 weeks as work continues on the new footbridge.  I expected its' closure to cause pandemonium but we seem to have taken it in our stride.

As promised, this week I'm focussing on Shoreham Wordfest.  Now in its second year, Shoreham Wordfest is a local literary festival which aims to celebrate the written, spoken and sung words of new and established writers. It was officially launched last night and will end on 7th October.

As a new local writer myself,  I was asked to contribute to Wordfest and in fact missed a few blogs because I was working on my script. For various reasons my play, "The Orchards"  could not be included in this year's programme but it will be performed under the Wordfest banner in Spring 2013.  I'll let you know when.

Now some of this year's events have already sold out so you may need to get your skates on if you don't want to miss out. There's a huge variety of events to choose from ranging from a literary lunch with Simon Brett to Rattle Tales.

I'm looking forward to Cinema-by-Sea as I want to find out whether the beach studio complex really ever came close to being the Los Angeles of the British Film Industry and a highlight for the family is Rhyme Rhythm and Rap with Brian Moses.

He describes himself as a modern equivalent to a Medieval travelling jester which will go down a storm with our 7 year old. Talking of which, I'd recommend Tiger's Eye Writers for budding young local writers.  It's lovely to see samples of their work after each session but honestly, what planet are they on?!

Hope to see you at Wordfest.

Ta-ra for now.
