The cost is £9 per person (£7 for the buffet and £2 towards the hire of the performance area within the arts centre) and the buffet will be prepared by Norma Slimmon, who owns and runs A' the Airts' organic cafe. After lunch, there is a great opportunity for writers and those with an interest in books and literature in the area to have a good chinwag, a gossip, network, meet up with old friends and make new friends.

This is the third such lunch, and the previous two have been enormously successful.Poets, novelists, short story writers, non-fiction writers, playwrights, journalists, screenwriters, etc - you're all welcome to attend.
