WAG talks at Southwold Library

The Waveney Author Group (WAG) had their first library event at Southwold Library yesterday (Mon 17th Aug 2015). A lovely small library, managed by Charlotte Clark. Although small it has nearly everything, in fact it would be hard to find what it doesn’t have.

Before starting this author event a holiday maker popped in with some courgettes that had grown into marrows (she had popped home to Norfolk to check on her garden) and asked Charlotte if she would like to sell them, along with the plants that the library was selling. The courgettes were huge!


Here are some photos of the authors:

The first East Anglian author fair

We held the first East Anglian author fair at the end of July at the fabulous Coconut Loft Art Gallery on Waterloo Road. This gave locals an opportunity to ‘meet the author’  with twelve authors from across Norfolk and Suffolk, including: Suzan Collins, Helen Thwaites, Caroline Way, Hannah Precious, Ian Robb, Terry Tarbox, Pam Finch, Bronwen Grono, Jocelyn Blakey, Helen Milligan, Patricia Peters and Ann Bowyer.

All the authors~done with my camera

The centrepiece of the event were five newly published authors who had risen to a ‘get published’ challenge set by themselves during our writing workshops last November. We met regularly to provide support and formed the group Waveney Author Group (WAG).

By popular demand the 2nd Annual event will take place next July and an interim ‘meet the authors’ weekend will be held at the Coconut Loft on the 5th & 6th Dec.

Author places are selling well, with only a few places left. For more information pop along to www.getwriting.co.uk
