We are delighted to announce that Charley Barnes has taken on the role of Secretary for LitFest. Charley brings her many and various talents to bear on programming, and the website, as well as the more traditional aspects of secretarial duties.
Polly Stretton, who has been our secretary for the past four years, will focus on the LitFest competition co-ordinator role in addition to being one of the directors of LitFest.
We wish both Charley and Polly good luck in these essential areas.
This prestigious literary prize was forged by the dwarves of Poundsaver and presented to the funniest performer at Rubber Swordplay: Kieran Davis, better known as baldypoems.
The event was hosted to much hilarity by local charlatan Tony Judge.
