FRI 21st - SUN 23rd OCTOBER 2022

It’s hard to believe that only three weeks ago the first planning meeting of the Berry Writers Festival took place!

Those first weeks have been so much more rewarding than we could have imagined. Everyone who has heard of the project has been as much head-over-hills in love with it as we are. There have been so many offers of time, energy and contacts, ideas and moments of inspiration. We knew it would take a village, but who knew how engaged the village would become and how the virtual village would be so widespread?

So far, we have a dozen authors who have agreed to appear, we have at least four workshops lined up, we have an official organisation: Berry Writers Inc, we have a web site, a bank account, and avenues for funding. 

Watch this blog as we profile some of our authors and workshop convenors over the next few weeks. Also look out for competitions!

AND… Make sure you keep the weekend  clear and invite your friends down to Beautiful Berry to join in!
