I wait all year for The Folkestone Book Festival, looking forward to meeting new authors and hearing about new books. This year I am actually holding a fringe event myself with the writing group I run in Folkestone called Write By The Sea. I am very excited at having over thirty authors all in one place for their readers to buy their books and have a chat.

The shape of things to come is very apt as Write by the sea is getting better every month, we have a lovely mix of authors from beginners to published, who share their knowledge and expertise. New members are always welcome, we hold two meetings a month, one for the group and the other is a guest speaker who could be an author, illustrator or in fact anyone at all involved in making a book.

This year during November we will also be joining in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) where we will have extra meetings once a week at different locations and times so we try to suit everybody who wishes to join us. The idea is to write 50,000 words during the month but just getting words down onto paper is good enough and it gives you a start. If you would like to join us at any of the venues then please do. I would also like to mention that there is no charge for anything at these group events, the only thing you have to buy is a drink at the venue so we are supporting them as they are providing the location free of charge.
