Feast of Words is a monthly literary event that includes on-the-spot creative writing competition and a fine meal cooked by guest Chef Peter Jackson. Before the pencils have at them, you’ll eat and hear a reading from guest spoken work artist Kirya Traber.
The theme is month is “On the Shoulders of Giants” and then competition should be a take-off from that, but it won’t be anything too grueling so don’t worry if you feel like a novice. There’s even a prize at the end.
