Moon And Henry

Women writers and readers are continuing to join Words And Women as members which is great news for us. One of our newest members is Sarah Bower whose short story Moon And Henry will be broadcast on Radio 4 in the Tales From The East series, in the week beginning the 1st of September. The reader is Norwich actor Poppy Miller.

Sarah’s novels – The Needle In The Blood and Sins Of The House Of Borgia – have been translated into 9 languages. Her third novel – Erosion – will be published in 2014, when she will also become writer-in-residence at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.

Sarah currently lives in North Suffolk.

If you would like to become a member of Words And Women then see our membership page for more details. Annual membership costs £10 and our first event will take place in Norwich in October when we’ll be offering a Sunday afternoon treat of tea and cakes and five short talks by some very special guests.

Many women writers and readers in this region are joining Words And Women as members which is great news. One of the exciting results of this is that we’re learning a lot about new publications and up-and-coming literary events.
Andrea Holland  had just joined us as a member. She’s a poet, author and creative-writing tutor based in Norwich, and tells us that her new collection Broadcasting , published by Gatehouse Press, will be reviewed in the EDP this Saturday 17/08/13.

Broadcasting is the result of the Norfolk Commission Award for poetry which Andrea won in 2012. The book focusses on the 1942 requisition of several Norfolk villages for D-Day training, and should interest readers of poetry but also anyone interested in East Anglian or regional history. Copies of the book are available from Gatehouse Press.
