Bring A Friend
TheFed Writing Festival makes an enjoyable and inspirational day out.  There is something for everyone - so please do invite all your friends and relatives to come along.

GROW News Update

Jan Hedger is starting a new GROW group in Bexhill which will be meeting fortnightly, starting on 1st October 2012.  Bexhill GROW aims to highlight not only writing, but a mixture of many creative crafts - so there will be something for everybody, along with tea/coffee and biscuits!  There will also be the opportunity to link up with other GROW groups. 

A GROWgroups YouTube account has been created specifically for our own videos.

Frank Burnham, our dear friend, GROW member and executive died in August.
The tributes to Frank have been added to the 'In Loving Memory' page of the Writing Gallery.  If you would like to add your own tribute please use this Writing Submission Form.

The children's library is moving into the main library, so we have had to find a new home for our Tuesday group.  We are now meeting at:
The Roebuck Centre, Roebuck Street,
Hastings Old Town,
East Sussex, TN34 3BB
12.30 - 14.15 every Tuesday (except school holidays)

Out of the Blue, our 2012 anthology, has been added to the GROW Publications page.  It is available for download in PDF (adobe acrobat) or TXT (plain text) format and Jack Maartman has very kindly converted it into BRF (for Braille printers) for us.  You can also watch the film version.

We will be having a book launch party on the 17th October. The book & dvd sets will also be available to buy at TheFED Festival in November.

Congratulations to Sheba Solomons,

the winner of the 'Out of the Blue' cover design competition.
Please help TheFED by forwarding this email
to everyone who might be interested in our work.
