Hastings Writers’ Group are inviting youngsters from Hastings and St Leonards aged 5-11 to put pen to paper and submit stories, poems, paintings and drawings to be used in a book celebrating the group’s platinum anniversary next year.

Organiser Rosemary Bartholomew says the book will be called Imagine That! and will be sold to raise funds for three local charities: Charity for Kids, Dragonflies, and the Oliver Curd Trust. She said: “The theme is imagination. Children can submit whatever comes into their heads: dreams, the future, space, adventures, mysteries, etcetera. We’re looking forward to receiving a creative mix.”

Deadline for submissions is December 9, 2016. For further information email: or visit the website at:
