Please join us for our September business breakfast on 10th September 2019 at The Sun Inn, Lower Burton, Dorchester DT2 7RZ from 7.45am to 9.00am.
Our main speaker will be Janet Gleeson, Co-Director of the Dorchester Literary Festival. The festival is now in it’s 5th year and will run from 15th-20th October 2019. featuring a host of prominent writers, poets and political minds.
There are a number of ways you can get involved. There are some sponsorship opportunities still available if your organisation would like to sponsor this popular event or you could volunteer to support the event with your time. As a volunteer, you’ll be allowed free entry to all of the events (subject to available space). You may also have the chance to meet some of the authors, and refreshments will be provided throughout your shifts.
Over the past four years, the Dorchester Literary Festival has celebrated the town’s rich literary past by showcasing some of the most exciting writing of the past and present. The DLF Local Writer Award will focus on the future by aiming to continue Dorset’s literary tradition by investing in its homegrown talent. Budding authors can submit works of fiction, non-fiction, or short stories that have been published by a Local Independent Publisher or self-published. Any writer based in Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Devon and Cornwall or with a close connection to those counties can enter. This is a fantastic opportunity for writers whose work has been published on a local level to gain national exposure, and notice from literary establishment figures. Although too late to enter this year as submissions needed to be received by May, budding authors are encouraged to submit something next year.
However, if you prefer just to visit the Dorchester Literary Festival, tickets will be on sale from August.
Further information on What’s On, how to book tickets and/or how to get involved will be on their website
