Would be so good to see any of you who fancy coming to this reading. I've attended the Needlewriters evenings as an audience member before and it's been a brilliant experience, not least because it's a great venue (with cake as well as wine) and there's an excellent inspiring atmosphere. If you do manage to get there, please say hello if I don't know you...
and delicious food and drink, at the Needlemakers Café, West Street, Lewes

READING, THURSDAY JUNE 11
Prose: SARAH SALWAY
Poetry: ANDIE LEWENSTEIN
Prose: JULIE CORBIN
Sarah Salway is the author of two novels, Something Beginning With and Tell Me Everything (Bloomsbury) and a collection of short stories, Leading the Dance (bluechrome). She judged the short story competition for The New Writer magazine this year, and is currently editing her second short story collection.
Andie Lewenstein has published poems and stories in anthologies and won the Ware Poets sonnet prize. She is currently drawing inspiration from fairy tale and the forest where she lives. She has taught creative writing in Adult Education, on Emerson College’s Word Work course, and she was co-director of the annual Poetry Otherwise conference in Forest Row.
Julie Corbin studied creative writing at Sussex University. Her first novel, Tell Me No Secrets, was shortlisted for two competitions: the Daily Telegraph's 'Novel in a Year' and the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 'first 10,000 words of a novel.' The paperback will be published in July and has already been described by one reviewer as 'an absolute corker.' She is currently working on her second novel, also a psychological thriller.

If you plan to have supper at the Café, it’s probably a good idea to arrive in time to order and eat before the readings start.
