Greenacre Writers has lots going on in September. Exactly a year since the occupation and liberation of Friern Barnet Library, there is to be a celebration and preview of a new book on the 5th September 2013 in the library at 7pm. Occupied and Opened - the story of Friern Barnet Library. The book edited by Rosie Canning, features the community voices and spirit that went into saving the library and will be published later in the year.
There is also a fabulous writing retreat in Oxfordshire from Friday September 6th to Sunday 8th. Take a break from the busy world and enjoy some countryside peace to get the words flowing. See here for details. Writers' Retreat
Refreshed from Oxfordshire, Rosie Canning will be leading her second 6-part Start That Novel course from Monday 9th September. Details and online deposit payment here. Start That Novel
