Local creative collective, Thanet Creative Writers, will shortly be transitioning into a charitable organisation.
Thanet Creative Writers founder, Matthew Brown, said
since the foundation of Thanet Creative Writers in 2013 we have focused on supporting local writers, especially those just starting out. Up to this point, we have focused mostly on running our own groups and events but there is so much more we could be supporting. The time seems right to move beyond our own backyard and to contribute to the wider community.
We are hoping, he added,
to work with other poet, writer, and creative groups to do the most good for the most people in Thanet within the realm of artistic expression with words. There are so many great initiatives already available in Thanet and we want to do our part in helping to ensure that they are a success.
Membership of Thanet Creative Writers' Charity is open to any individuals or organisations wishing to see creative writing promoted in Thanet.
The inaugural launch of Thanet Creative Writers as a charity takes place at Matthew Brown's home at 7.30pm on 2nd February (more details here).
