Having just been involved in my local Deepings Literary Festival I’m delighted to bring details of another festival a little bit further from South Lincolnshire where I live. The lovely festival organisers are giving away two tickets to an event of the winner’s choice and I’m delighted to share this with you.
Here’s what they told me:
Margate Bookie, the friendly lit fest by the sea, is back, live and in-person once more from the Turner Contemporary. This year, it’s gearing up to be an action-packed Jubilee weekend of great authors, unique performances and incredible events. Their fab line-up includes novelist Maggie Gee, BBC Radio 1 medical expert Dr Radha Modgil, comedian Rosie Wilby, and social media sensation Felicity Hayward.
From debut novelist Chloe Timms, the IsleWrite and 14 Magazine anthologies, and the Live Launch of their third Zine, The Open Arms, they’ve got it all. And who can forget the official launch of their founder and CEO Andreas Loizou’s latest book, The Story is Everything.
They’re also binging us some fantastic workshops from Elise Valmorbida on outsiderness, and Zoe Gilbert is there to help us write some Seaside Stories. And just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, their annual Bookie Poetry Slam returns for Part 5, headlined by emcee and broadcaster, The Repeat Beat Poet.
To celebrate, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to any event in their action-packed programme. For your chance to win, simply comment on this bog post and we’ll pick a winner at random on Monday 30 May.
Doesn’t that sound great? If you’d like two tickets to an event of your choice simply comment on this blog post by 5PM on Monday 30th May and a random winner will be chosen by Margate Bookie.
