The Wordfest team are now starting to plan for activities in 2015,
to include a creative writing course with Sue Walker, a new venture by Janet Behan of Market Theatre, play readings on Farmer's Market days, and the Poetry Trail during Adur Festival. We will send more details as each activity is finalised.

Wordfest 2015 will be at the end of September, beginning of October, with the theme of "Moments of Change". We have a host of ideas and suggestions, but do let us know if there is anything you particularly want to see.

Finally, we know that many of you are actively involved in creative writing and artistic activities. If you live in Adur or Worthing, and have a project in mind, you might be interested in applying for a small grant from the Adur and Worthing Trust. More details on

We will be sending monthly newsletters so contact us if you have any news you want to send to other Wordfest supporters:
