HOOORAY!!! This is a very special Loose Muse, as we’re celebrating our 10TH BIRTHDAY.
Can’t quite believe that we’ve been going that long…no wonder I’ve got grey hairs…and that it’s even more popular now than it was when we started.The good news is that we’ll be unfurling our new and glorious banner, designed and made by Catherine Tuson, plus I’m one of this month’s features – And there will also be cake! I’m urging you to bring a caketo share…with a prize for the best decorated cake guaranteed!The not so good news is that, after ten years, I’m having to put the entry fee up from £5/3 to £6/4 – sorry about that, but the room hire has gone up so we have little choice.That apart, September is a very full month,with lots to enjoy and share:
LOOSE MUSE – London’s Premiere Women’s Writers Night. Wednesday 10th September – the second Wednesday of each month.

TheFED 2014 Writing Festival and AGM.
We are making huge strides towards building up TheFED - continuing, and expanding upon the work of the FWWCP - and turning the old pipe-dreams into an exciting reality.
We believe that 2014 will be the biggest and best event we have held so far. We are once again looking for workshop leaders who feel they can offer our attendees the outstanding and diverse range of stimulating, informative and enjoyable workshops that all TheFED Festivals are famous for.
TheFED Archive project is moving on apace. One of our goals as a new organisation was to build a complete collection of publications, articles, papers and documents that would be stored safely and securely but remain accessible to our members and the general public.
