A reading of recent work by Faversham writers Griselda Mussett, Frances Rowley Beaumont and Nelson P Jefferson, members ofThe Inklings writing group. The group has been meeting fortnightly in Faversham for over two years, working with Kent author and writing mentor Miles Allen, and welcomes new members who are keen to see their own books or projects completed and published.
Griselda Mussett has published a volume of poetry and a book of ghost stories from Faversham, as well as various magazine and broadcast features. 'I find the discipline of The Inklings writing group immensely helpful in planning out new works.'
Frances Rowley Beaumont is currently working on a book about the inspirational life of her friend John Oliver, an artist, farm worker, chef and sailor who ran a tug called HOBBIT. He was born without hands and was differently skilled with his left foot.
Nelson P Jefferson has published several short stories in Faversham and Whitstable local magazines and has gained invaluable experience with The Inklings, which is currently feeding into his ongoing 'Vessels' dodecology.
This is a free event, no ticket required; there will be a retiring collection after the event to help raise funds for the festival.
