Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

Friday, February 27, 2009


Starting at 7.30pm our next meeting takes place in the Cafe Libra at Felixstowe Library and will be chaired by Dave. The homework assignment is for 500 words on either ‘Comic’ or ‘Behind the Scenes’ or even both combined. The 1,500 open themed work will be provided by Alex and a substitute for Jane who is unable to make the meeting.

It is hoped that the posters will be available for the new Bill Budner Short Story competition which will be open to all writers.

We understand that the Writers' Cafe at Starbucks in the Buttermarket Ipswich on Monday 16th March is now fully subscribed - which just proves the popularity of these great events.

Please see below for the BBC Writersroom Newsletter

Hope to see you all at Scribblers on Tuesday so, until then,

Keep scribbling!
