Well it's all over for another year. What an amazing month that was! Nearly 70 events all over Essex and some extraordinary writers and events. We finish on a great high as Hollie Hughes is announced as the winner of the Making Waves competition with her play A Leap of Faith. All five writers who were shortlisted, did brilliantly and we highly recommend a listen to each of them - they're all winners. Go to the Extra section.
There were lots of highlights for us in the office and I'm sure you all have your own favourites too. We had lots of popular well known authors as well as a fine collection of newer authors who were fascinating and enthused us about their work. I know many of you have very big piles of books waiting to be read now.
If you would like us to include any literary events on the website, drop us an email.
Til next year then, happy reading.
