Dyslexia Reading Event 2016

Readings by Penkhull and other Staffordshire Authors : 27th May 2016

March's postponed Dyslexia Reading Event has been rescheduled for 27th May.

Last year's event was a tremendous success, with a packed house and some great readings, many of which were specially written, by the Renegade Writers, Room in the Roof and Newcastle Writers groups. Penkhull Press will be well represented, with readings from Jan Edwards, Misha Herwin and Jem Shaw.

Tickets are just £3 each, and all proceeds go to the Dyslexia Association of Staffordshire

Leominster Book Fair 2016

Appearances, Book Signings and Readings by Penkhull Authors: 30th May 2016

Part of the Leominster Festival, this year's Book Fair will be opened by Anne O'Brien. Penkhull Press will be there with a full range of our books, plus the acclaimed range from our partner organisation, Alchemy Press.

Misha Herwin, Jan Edwards and Jem Shaw will be there to sign books and to give readings from their forthcoming releases.

It all takes place in the lovely old Grange Court. There's a good café and loads of family fun activities to keep the kids happy.

6X6 Reading Café

Readings by Stoke on Trent Authors on the Theme of 'Blossoming': 14th June 2016

The first 6x6 Reading Café set the stage for a must-attend event. The concept is simple: six writers each read a six-minute piece of their work. That makes it fast-moving and, as March's event demonstrated, helps deliver a full gamut of genres.

'Beginnings' brought us humour, pathos, mild horror and philosophy, all in the space of less than an hour. The summer event is on the theme of 'Blossoming', and there's little doubt that we'll see an equally varied set of interpretations.
