Work/ Life Balance
There is no doubt that freelancing writing
can be all consuming and this can be a little daunting for
those who are looking at taking the plunge from the traditional
daily grind of working life.
After all, one of the reasons freelance writing appeals to
so many is that you can choose the hours you want to work.
Sadly, the pitfall with freelance writing is that you do have

Havant Literary Festival - 25 September
- 4 October 2009
This year, the Festival has more than doubled in size and
we have a host of top names already confirmed including Fay
Weldon, Stella Duffy, Maggie Gee, Michael McCarthy, Claire
Armitstead and Louis de Bernières and the Antonius
Players. We also have three sub-themes:
Crime - this enduringly popular genre will be thoroughly explored
through talks, workshops and indeed, cake! We also have a
whole strand featuring Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the
world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.
Water - has been an inspiration for artists and writers since
time immemorial in all its guises, from floodplains to teardrops.
The Borough of Havant has a special affinity with water as
its history, heritage and economy are interwoven with the
spring-dependent activities of parchment-making, tanning and
brewing, and the saltwater industries of oyster production
Journeying - Havant Arts and Heritage Centre opens this autumn
with some wonderful shoe exhibitions and shoe-related activities.
We’ve expanded on this theme to explore all kinds of
journeys, pathways and travel.
