Celebrating Island authors

On 5th May the Inky team will be joining a fantastic line up of writers to celebrate local authors on the Isle of Wight.

The event is being staged at Lord Louis Library in Newport and will provide opportunities to meet and chat with award-winning authors and self published writers.

There’ll be a chance to get your hands on signed copies of our books, plus find out more about the new titles we will be publishing this summer.

Writing Masterclass 2

A variety of workshops and children’s activities will also be running throughout the morning.

For anyone who has dreamed of writing a book, but not known where to start, Krissy will be hosting an hour-long mini writing masterclass filled with practical tips and inspiration to give you the confidence to start writing your best-seller.

Meanwhile, Zoe will be introducing her upcoming book ‘Chasing Butterflies’, and leading a butterfly themed activity for children.

The Local Author event takes place between 10am and 1pm and entry is free. There is a charge for the workshops and children’s activities and places can be booked in advance at the library.
