DESCRIPTION: Stairwell Books have published nearly 40 women writers (hundreds, including anthologies and magazines). Commitments, distance and cost make gathering together impossible. Women can however support each other through the internet. In this lively Zoom session chaired by editor Rose Drew, some of Stairwell’s authors will share their work and ideas. Whether a new or veteran writer, you’re invited to join us and take part in the discussion afterwards.

We want to encourage people to arrive in another way than by car, as there is no parking on School Lane for extra cars.

There is a ramp for access at the entrance to the Scout Hut.
