An Evening in a Brewery

On Tuesday, 26th September J.S.Watts will be giving a talk and reading from her current books in Cirencester. The event is Writers in The Brewery and, most excitingly, the event will be taking place in a brewery (albeit a converted one).

Writers in the Brewery is a ‘pop-in’ social session for everyone who is interested in writing. Poets, fiction writers, biographers and non-fiction writers – all are welcome.

There is a guest speaker/performer each month: an author, publisher, poet, journalist, musician or groups, who share their work and entertain. J.S.Watts is September's guest speaker/ performer. There is also an open ‘mic’ each evening for anyone to read and share their work.

It is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn about groups, competitions, classes and workshops and a chance to showcase your own work if you want to. So come along to share your work or just sit back, sip your drink and listen to J.S. read from her books and talk about her work.
