Writing cafe in Cornwall
Good news for writers in Cornwall, particularly in the Falmouth area. The well known writer, Patricia Finney, has set up a café in Penryn called Words.
Patricia is well known for her historical crime novels set mainly in the Elizabethan era and her children’s books about a very stupid Labrador called Jack and his adventures in the human world.
On Saturdays Patricia is to hold creative writing clinics between 11-3 every Saturday, where writers can turn up, pay £5 and receive a consultation with a writer who’s been a published novelist for 30 years and worked as a freelance journalist and sub-editor.
“I’ve always loved hanging around in coffee shops, drinking good coffee and eating cakes,” Patricia said, “and have written several of my books in them. So I decided to become a coffee shop entrepreneur myself and open the kind of place where I would like to sit and write.”
In fact, she’s offering a unique service. “Bring me your problems and I bet I can solve them.”
Sounds too good to be true.
You know we always take our elderly friend James out for coffee on Saturdays? I know exactly where we’ll go this time.
