Our Next Meeting

A Date with the Scribblers

The next meeting of the Felixstowe Scribblers takes place this coming Tuesday, August 18th in The Room at the Top in Felixstowe Library. Starting at 7.30pm our homework assignment was to write 500 words on “CATACLYSM” or “CATACLYSMIC”. The two 1,500 word open themed work will be provided by Ally and Simon.

Our friend Rochelle, has sent her best wishes to the Scribblers. As you read this, she will be preparing to jet off to the United States for a series of book launches to promote her book 'Beyond the Third Eye' as she has now completed those in Ireland. Not only that but she is now writing her fifth book. A busy lady is our Rochelle!

Understand that the first rough proof of our anthology is with Barry so this is another next step towards our own book launch. The launch will take place at the Cliff Hotel on 28th November but details have yet to be finalised. Kol Paterson has offered his services free of charge to provide background music so things are beginning to take shape.

Below you will find one or two ads that may be of interest... also keep an eye on this weblog for details of any competitions that are received.

Keep Scribbling!
