Ipswich Arts Festival 2011

Some of the shortlisted books for the New Angle Prize
The Ipswich Arts Festival is with us again from the 24th of June to the 10th of July 2011.
Literature is always featured as part of the event, and this year promises interesting treats for aspiring authors.
A seminar on how to get published by Juliet Pickering, includes information on how to get an agent, writing a compelling synopsis and cover letter, and if you had time to book before the 7th of June, a one-one 20-minute feedback session on your work.
New Angle Prize for Literature celebrates writing inspired by East Anglia. There will be a showcase of the 2011 shortlist, featuring readings and conversations with the shortlisted authors who are as follows: Aftermath by Ronald Blythe, The Last Weekend by Blake Morrison, Death Watch by Jim Kelly, The Wake by Jeremy Page, The Aldeburgh Scallop by Maggi Hambling and A Flora of Suffolk by M Sanford & R J Fisk.

The event will not be short of laughs with Jo Brand the British comedian, chatting about her memoir Can't Stand up For Sitting Down.

Simon Armitage will talk about Seeing Stars and there is also a chance to lunch with Esther Freud as she talks about her new novel Lucky Break.
