Grantham Writers are pleased to announce their first annual book festival to be held in the Museum on Saturday 21 October, 2017, from 12:00 Noon until 6:00 PM. Admission is free. All are invited.


Visitors will be able to sample and purchase books, and talk with authors across a wide spectrum of historical fiction, contemporary fiction, fantasy, mystery, thrillers, young adult fantasy, children’s books, children’s learning, coming of age journeys, triumphs over adversity and new writers looking for ways to see their work into print.


Visitors will also be able to sit down in a quiet corner with authors to hear them read from their work and answer questions. These writers include Richard Pike, Samantha Houghton, Maria Dziedzan, Anne Goodwin, Lisa J Rivers and Wilf Morgan.


Riis Marshall, a local writer and member of Grantham Writers says: ‘Christmas will soon be here – perhaps too soon for some of us. This festival is a great place to find that special gift for that special someone. Books never, ever go out of style.’


And for those with an interest in writing…


Grantham Writers are a friendly group who share a common interest in writing of all kinds. Absolute beginners, established professionals and those anywhere in between are welcome.


The aim is to promote creative writing, and encourage and support anyone in the Grantham area with their literary activities. Members' interests cover genres such as novels, short stories, poetry, plays, film, TV and theatre, as well as journalism in all its forms, biographies, autobiographies and anything else.


Those interested are invited to a regular meeting at Grantham Museum on the third Monday of every month at 7:30 PM. Specialist speakers are sometimes invited to discuss their experiences and workshops run by recognised experts are scheduled from time to time.


Formed in 1991 by two local writers from very different backgrounds, the group was launched to coincide with the official opening of the Grantham Guildhall Arts Centre at the start of October the same year. The idea blossomed from a meeting at the White Swan pub in nearby Barrowby, between former teacher Paul Groves, author of hundreds of educational books and famous for the popular children's television series 'Bangers and Mash', and long established journalist, author and poet Peter Clawson.
