Antidiary: Writers Takeover | 14-20 Sept


Your words matter! Join Kerry Ryan of @writelikeagrrrl for her Antidiary takeover where she’ll be offering advice and encouragement to help you get your words on the page. Everybody has a story to tell!

Visit the AntiDiary blog from Monday to get involved by writing yourself, commenting, listening, reading, or to take some tips away to help inspire you in your own time. Kerry will be online for the whole week.

If you want to get involved & prefer to handwrite, across the week, we'll be distributing flyers all over Folkestone which include a space on the back to submit your entries. Drop them into our dropbox at the Orange Container in East Yard, and we'll transcribe them for you onto the blog.

This project, hosted by Folkestone Fringe, is part of the “MagiC Carpets” Platform co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. This project has generously been supported by Arts Council England.
