The Eastbourne Book Fest winners and runners up are now published in 'The Word Is Out'
Saturday October 26th is the book launch for the winners and runners up of the competition as part of the annual Eastbourne Book Fest. The book is 'The Word Is Out' and the launch is at the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne at 4pm.
'The Word is Out' was the theme for the competition at this year's Book Festival and MyVoice Publishing, as part of our commitment to local authors, sponsored the publication of the winning stories and poems in a paperback book.
The competition sparked the imagination and let creative juices flow during the build up to the second successful Book Festival in Eastbourne this summer. The competition attracted enteries by many talented local writers and indeed from further afield. Poetry and short stories were submitted and judged by creative writing teacher Jacq Molloy.
"There was plenty in the entries to enjoy as a reader and acknowledge as a judge. There was humour, suspense, poignancy, surprise and playfulness. Some writers played with language, others played with reader expectation to deliver a killer, and often unexpected ending." enthused Jacq Molloy on her difficult task, selecting the winners and the better runners up for inclusion in the book.
The result is a quality book of short stories, flash fiction and poems that will keep readers amused and entertained.
The wonderful cover is by local artist, teacher and illustrator Gillian Toft.
The official launch of the book 'The Word is Out' is on Saturday 26th October from 4-5 pm at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne.
The local Worshipful the Mayor, Councillor Mike Thompson will also attend the event.
The book is available as hard copy as well as ebook for Kindle.
