OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Writers Quarter returns to Carlisle as part of the Second Borderlines  Carlisle Book Festival in September (3rd to 6th September). This is the element of the festival specifically aimed at writers writing, and we have workshops (at The Crown & Mitre, Tullie House, and The Cathedral), in poetry, prose fiction, memoir and historical writing, and in using research, plus workshops on self publishing in both print, and digital formats. There will also be a Flash Fiction Forum, hosted by Dumfries & Galloway’s Crichton Writers, to which all are invited to bring, share and discuss their Flash Fictions, and their ideas on Flash Fiction.  Facets of Fiction colleague, Marilyn Messenger will lead another writing session in The Border Gallery at Tullie House, this time, using ‘antique’ letters as a source of inspiration. Finally there’ll be a grand celebration in the Cathedral Fratry, on the evening of Saturday 5th, at which Manchester based Flash Fiction writer David Gaffney will read, and will announce the prize winners for L’al Crack…Borderlines own Flash Fiction competition.

Details of all these events, and many, many more, can be found on the Borderlines website at www.borderlinescarlisle.co.uk  Have a good one!
