Strictly come write-in: November in Hastings

It’s November and it’s NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, the phenomenon that has people globally putting pen to paper to achieve 50,000 words in one month. Anyone, regardless of experience, age, gender or nationality, can join the virtual international community and support network that helps people find their voice through writing – and what’s better than that? Hastings Central Library and Sea Kale are supporting local scribes by providing the space for the write-ins organised by HOT’s

Writing group in action

Want to do some creative writing but not sure where to start?

If so, the group run by Dany Louise  might be exactly what you are looking for. Dany runs an informal creative writing session once a month, focusing on one aspect of writing each session – could be dialogue, could be description, opening sentences, plotting, character, or any theme that makes good writing material (love, death, and pretty much everything in between).

Death comes to Hastings

Crime-fiction writers love seaside settings – the myriad ways to kill people perhaps – so, it’s surely not that surprising that Hastings should have its moment in the sun in the Dr Jocasta Hughes’ series. A. Vasudevan catches up with writer Candy Denman at one of Jocasta’s favourite bars.

Jane Sarre, actively hoping -  and working towards a fairer future for all

Active Hope: a book club

Active Hope: How to Face the Mess we’re in Without Going Crazy. The challenges we currently face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval, and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asked Jane about the catalyst for forming the book group and her future vision. 

Decolonising the University

‘De-colonising the University’

The book, Decolonising the University is the subject of a book talk organised by Lee Humphries at his bookshop, Printed Matter Bookshop on Queen’s Road. Two of the contributors will be present for the discussion.
