I went to Port Eliot literary and music festival at St Germans, Cornwall last weekend, and it strikes me that the forum should be represented at such events. We could offer our members books, advice to anyone who has brought work with them, the occasional half serious lecture, maybe a ‘live’ version of the limerick thread, readings from the works of members who can’t attend, interviews with published members.
I expect someone can throw up more ideas, we could put on a good display. There is an ‘events’ section under ‘articles’ where you could list anywhere we could go as well as listing it here, there must be similar events on other continents as well.
Now, has anyone got a very large tent and some old comfy chairs and carpet we could borrow to get us started?
