Lots happening in Brightlingsea, Essex at the moment. My friend, Jan Williams is an oral storyteller, the founder of Essex Storytellers and a star in my last book FOLKLORE OF ESSEX. Jan is always working on new, exciting projects. The booklet she wrote linked to the Essex Witch Trials of 1645 was very well received and her children's work has been published by Scholastic.

Jan is presenting her special tutorial skill within a one-day Autumn Course at Number l Hurst Green, Brightlingsea, Essex. This is a wonderful sixteenth century cottage overlooking the picturesque green at Brightlingsea.

Jan's Short Story Writing Course at Hurst Green takes place on Saturday November 7th and runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm with lunch provided. She will encourage participants to produce an adult short story inspired by a garden and she'll help them develop the structure of a story.

Price for the day is £50 and includes refreshments and buffet lunch. For further information do email Jan Also check out bed and breakfast enquiries
