STOP PRESS! Sawbo Writers' Club Special Guest

There’s a special guest-tutor at this week’s February meeting of the Sawbo Writers’ Club.

Normal host Emma has a bad case of laryngitis and can’t make it this Wednesday, but J.S.Watts has agreed to step into the breech at the last minute and take over the meeting for this one night. Somewhat ironically, given Emma’s condition, she will be discussing ‘Voice’ (in all its various meanings).

The meeting is taking place at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 8th February at Sawbridge Words Bookshop, 47 Bell Street, Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire (opposite the Café of Angels).

£10 for the session (or £5 for the unwaged )
For further information contact Neville on 01279 248336 or sawbridgewords@gmail.com
