TLW Lexicon - A Literary Festival for Readers & Writers! 15th & 16th March 2014
A literary festival for both readers and writers, the TLW Lexicon boasts a great line up: screenwriter, Christopher Colton; editor, writer, tutor Katy Darby; best-selling author, Stephen Deas; author and editor Cherry Potts; prize-winning author, Stewart Ross; author Bartle Sawbridge; author, screenwriter Ben Slythe; and, of course, author, photographer and the man responsible for the festival, Graham Guy.
Plus, another reason I'm really excited about this event is that my sister, Tasha, and I, who run Wittegen Press, are also featuring during the festival. We're going to be on the main stage both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, we're, talking about Self-publishing vs Indie Publishing, where we'll be discussing why we set up our own publisher, and some hints in and tips on going it alone in the publishing world. On Sunday, we're talking about Building Worlds and Building Audiences. Plus, of course, we'll be hanging around the festival at other times, joining in the start of the day panels and listening to the other panellists. Plus, we'd love to meet people and talk about books :).
I'm particularly looking forward to the screening of Wilds a film by Ben and Graham, at lunchtime on either day and the screenwriting workshop by Chris on Sunday afternoon, since it's not an area of writing I'm familiar with. All the other panels sound interesting too and there's some great readings and plays going on the performance stage throughout the day.
There's also signings, a chance to meet all the authors and business stalls as well, and it's all for only £1 to get in.
Oh yes, finally, you probably want to know where all this is happening: The TLW Lexicon is taking place on 15th and 16th March 2014 at the Alexander Centre Faversham, Kent, UK. There's a great train service to Faversham, straight down from London, and also it's just off the M2.
