A conversation and a reading event

Dear supporters,

Tomorrow one of our original members of the creative writing class at St Mungo's will be in conversation with me for the Listening Project, BBC Radio 4. We will be going to broadcasting house to be recorded. This is very exciting. We'll be discussing what meeting each other has meant to us both, and how writing has changed our lives. The whole conversation will be archived at the Bristih Library as a piece of cultural history, and a short snippet of it will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 as part of their Listening Project series. I'm not sure when, but will keep you informed! 

We're also hosting our first reading event at the end of the month. We'll be coming together at Housemans Bookshop on Caledonian Road, London N1, on Monday 26th November at 7 till 9, to hear some of our writers read their pieces from the anthology and also to join a panel discussion on what the project has meant for them. Our writers are Rob True, Tori Creyton, Astra Bloom and award-winning novelist and poet John O'Donoghue. Tickets are free, and there are only a few left, but you can book yours here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/writing-for-recovery-an-evening-of-readings-and-discussion-tickets-50956936569?aff=ebdssbdestsearch

Hope you're all well and happy!

Warm wishes from us, Lily and Zoe
