III.
STORYSLINGERS CURIOUS STALL OF HANDMADE LITERATURE

Come to Shaftesbury Arts Centre at about 10am-4pm on Saturday the 8th of Sept, we will have a stall of handmade books, zines, comics, bookmarks, cards, origami, chapbooks and also published works and postcards. We're not sure which room we'll be in yet, but the mystery will only add to your experience as you wend your way around the labyrinth of SAC in search of wondrous treasure (ie: us).

Map making competition winner(s) will be announced on Saturday, at the stall/ display table in the Arts Centre, at noon. All the maps will be on display, along with a display of members' achievements, previous and forthcoming events, information and pictures.

  1. This looks like a great event - it's just a shame I'm busy next weekend or I'd come along and meet you all.

    Are any of you going along to any of the forthcoming YCAA events at the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil? It would be nice to meet up with other local writers!

  2. Thanks, Kate.
    Please let us know more about the YCAA events, we've not heard much about it. It would be great to meet writers in the area, yes.
