ME4Writers present their collective, collaborative project ‘The Word Shed’ at Fuse Medway Festival!
Come and visit The Word Shed, where inside, instead of seeds, pots and a lawnmower, and that drawer that’s full of things that you might need one day, you will find yourself in a blossoming, inspirational world of words.
During the festival, visitors to The Word Shed will help create a new ME4Writers’ publication. On the first two days, visitors will have the chance to add their poem or short story to the growing publication, on the third day, the writers will perform highlights from the new, nurtured and fully grown publication, and giveaway a free copy
The Word Shed is a Spark Commission for the Fuse Medway Festival, 14-16 June 2013.
ME4Writers will also be running some creative writing workshops, ‘Wordshops’, in the run up to the festival, where we will invite attendees to write short prose and poems inspired by Medway, Fuse and festivals!
Wordshops will be held at:
11 May – 1.30-3.30pm – Rochester Library
18 May – 10.30am-12.30pm – Strood Library
25 May – 10.30am-12.30pm – Walderslade Village Library
8 June – 1.30-3.30pm – Chatham Library
Places are free – but please reserve a place with the library concerned, or by phoning 01634 337799.
All submissions will then be added to our website, and a selection will be available from the Shed on the last day of the festival, printed in our new publication.
ME4Writers are known for their innovative, collaborative projects, and guerrilla publishing techniques, and have previously produced a poetry treasure hunt game played around the streets of Medway, ‘Poetrymon’, and the popular ‘Letters Home’ project, which asked people to write about home, culminating in an afternoon of readings and an exhibition at Rochester Library.
Dates: The Word Shed will be at various locations in Medway throughout the Fuse Festival. For exact locations please see their website, nearer the time.
