Writing competition: The Library at night

The Library at Night – this is the theme of the opening event of the 2012
Portobello Book Festival. We are planning a rich programme of spoken word –
poetry and prose – with guest contributors from Portobello and beyond. There’ll
be music too! We’d like to hear your response (no more than 500 words please)
on what ‘the library at night’ conjures up for you, whatever age or background.
It could be fantasy, comedy, opinion or based loosely on your own experience.

Some of the responses will be chosen for ‘performance’ at the opening event –
by the author or somebody else. So, go on, have a go! You will be supporting the
Book Festival and it could be fun.

Closing date: 3rd September 2012
