Write UP with Margate Bookie goes digital

Literary festival event

Margate Bookie Write UP! is back, and this time it is going digital.

A jam-packed morning is planned for the event on Sunday, May 3 with workshops and a chance to share work.

The workshop will be run via Zoom and a link will be sent to everyone who has signed up a couple of days before the event. The cost is £9.99. And you can do it in your pyjamas. What a win.

Write UP! is a new programme of co-created events running throughout the year which build on the success of the Margate Bookie litfest.

It offers people of different ages and walks of life a chance to meet others through friendly and fun book-related events.
