Words And Women Launch Writing Sundays – All In A Good Cause

Words and Women, which supports and celebrates women writers is launching a series of Writing Sundays in the community to support their bid to raise funds for a virtual office and website.

The series of exciting writing workouts in Norwich are designed to be an energizing dip into creativity and will be held on 3 Sundays in September and one on the first of October led by professional writers in prose, poetry, scriptwriting, and devised theatre. Learn how to kickstart your first novel with Sarah Ridgard, join poet Julia Webb on the theme of family and childhood in poetry, devise theatre with Hannah Walker and transform a Suffragette text into a contemporary script with Belona Greenwood. Book up for all four or fix on one that sparks your imagination.

The workshops take place in The Old Hospital Chapel, Fellowes Plain, Norwich, NR1 4DL all between 10 and 12 a.m (except for week 3 which will run between 9.45 – 12.15).

The workshops are just £20 each. They are open to all levels of women writers – there really is something for everyone. Book all four and get a 10% discount. Bookings open from August 19th at www.wordsandwomennorwich.blogspot.co.uk

If a workshop doesn’t appeal then Words and Women are asking supporters to dip into their pockets and support their crowd-funding appeal.

The voluntary organisation run by Lynne Bryan and Belona Greenwood are seeking to raise £3,500 by the end of September 2017 by asking people to become supporters offering donations of £5 and £25.

In return for their generosity, £5 supporters will receive advance notice of events and competitions planned for 2018.  The supporter’s name will also appear on the sponsors’ page of a new 2018 publication, the Words & Women compendium.

Become a Super Supporter for £25 and receive all of the above and a free copy of the compendium which will be published on the 8th March, International Women’s Day. Their name will also be entered in a prize draw for a bumper selection of books by women writers, published in the UK.

Holdfast print anthology#2 and call for submissions!

HOLDFAST_TIME_2

We need your help to print the second holdfast print anthology!

All you creatives out there will understand the importance of being paid for your work, even if it is great to get your work out there on any platform possible. The holdfast magazine anthology will not only be a beautiful paperback, but all profits after printing and postage go directly to the writers and artists that make the magazine possible. As our team edit holdfast in their free time just for the passion, we need to raise funds in order to pay our contributors.

After winning the British Fantasy Society award for best magazine last year, we’re determined to make this issue even better than volume 1, with more fiction, articles and illustrations. The content is ready to go, all we need is YOU to make this happen!

Go check out our awesome perks that include paperbacks, tote bags and art prints!
