We organise an annual festival each autumn, with talks, workshops and performances in many interesting, and occasionally quirky, venues around Shoreham and the local area.
Shoreham WordFest is running a playwriting course led by actress and playwright, Janet Behan, from 4 March to 15 July 2014. There will be an opportunity for plays to be submitted for performance during this year's WordFest in the autumn. Click here for more details.
Adur District Chairman, Mike Mendoza, is supporting a WordFest schools writing competition for children at all local primary and secondary schools during the spring term. Details are being circulated to schools in January. See Plans for 2014 page for more details.

Shoreham WordFest is organised by a group of local writers and literary enthusiasts.
We have a wide group of helpers and supporters. Many authors, workshop leaders and performers have given their time generously to make WordFest a success since we started in 2011.
We are very proud to have Simon Brett and Carol Cleveland as our patrons, and we are very grateful to the on-going support we receive from Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.
