Work/ Life Balance


There is no doubt that freelancing writing can be all consuming and this can be a little daunting for those who are looking at taking the plunge from the traditional daily grind of working life.

Creative Festivals

New Writers UK -Inspirational Writing

19th September 2009

Havant Literary Festival - 25 September - 4 October 2009

This year, the Festival has more than doubled in size and we have a host of top names already confirmed including Fay Weldon, Stella Duffy, Maggie Gee, Michael McCarthy, Claire Armitstead and Louis de Bernières and the Antonius Players. We also have three sub-themes:

Crime - this enduringly popular genre will be thoroughly explored through talks, workshops and indeed, cake! We also have a whole strand featuring Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.

Water - has been an inspiration for artists and writers since time immemorial in all its guises, from floodplains to teardrops. The Borough of Havant has a special affinity with water as its history, heritage and economy are interwoven with the spring-dependent activities of parchment-making, tanning and brewing, and the saltwater industries of oyster production and fishing.
Journeying - Havant Arts and Heritage Centre opens this autumn with some wonderful shoe exhibitions and shoe-related activities. We’ve expanded on this theme to explore all kinds of journeys, pathways and travel.
