MORE than 100 budding writers whose enthusiasm was unleashed by the Winchester conference have asked for some creative refuelling.

The annual writers' conference is holding a weekend next month to allow the scribes to pull off the writing road.

They can show their work to professional writers at the three-day event in Winchester on November 10-12 at King Alfred's College.

The cost of the weekend is £115 including Saturday lunch, Sunday buffet and tea and coffee.

Tickets are available from Barbara Large, conference director, Chinook, Southdown Road, Shawford, Hampshire SO21 2BY, 01962 712307.
