It’s been more than a year since a group of Ventnor writers, based in the Community Cafe, published a collection of stories on to Kindle. At that time they pledged to give a percentage of the proceeds to the ‘Friends of Ventnor Library.’
Led by group member Sue Curd, ‘Telling Tales’ is a collection of original and traditional Island Folk Tales, and is their first venture into e-books.
The Group has been together for four years exploring many aspects of writing with tutor John Goodwin. These have included Writing for Theatre, Radio Drama, A Sense of Place, Narrative Fiction, Film Scripts and Autobiography. John said, ‘I am delighted that sales of the book have enabled us to make a donation of £100 to Friends of Ventnor Library.’
Chair of the Friends, Evelyn Knowles, was equally pleased to accept the cheque and ensures it will be used to encourage authors to visit and introduce their work at the Library.
