Members’ Coffee Morning

What takes a story – and a writer – from a creative writing class at The Guildford Institute, to a published short story
collection that’s receiving wide acclaim?

Join us for tea, coffee and cake and hear from local author Alice Fowler as she describes the path to publication of her collection of short stories, The Truth Has Arms and Legs, published by Fly On The Wall Press in July 2023. Alice will also read some extracts from the book.

This event is for GI members only. Advance booking is preferred.
