WHEN EVE WRITES, OCTOBER 2018
SAWP EVENT: WHEN EVE WRITES, OCTOBER 2018
The WHEN EVE WRITES event was held on Sunday 21 October at the Best Western Greater London Hotel, Ilford, Essex
Ten writers, all at different stages of their literary journey, took to the SAWP Platform to share their story, encourage, inspire and give invaluable hints and tips to other budding authors and writers in the audience. The event did not end when we left, as the networking and collaborations started are still taking shape... watch out for some wonderful publications in 2019!
The When Eve Writes event had a surprising twist, when SAWP Facilitator Alison was "released" and given the mantle and commission for EHB (Esther's Heartbeat), an extension of SAWP to facilitate meetings for both women AND men.
Yes, we heard you, and agree it is time for men's voices to be heard!
