EADT Suffolk - - PHOEBE MORGAN AUTHOR - De­tails: ink­fes­ti­

The quest to “un­leash a pow­er­ful wave of un­tapped fe­male tal­ent” is un­der­way as the sec­ond Pri­madonna Prize is open for en­tries. Un­signed and un­rep­re­sented writ­ers are in­vited to con­trib­ute 500 words on the theme ‘The more things change’. Judges in­clude broad­caster June Sar­pong and co­me­dian David Bad­diel. The sub­ject can be in­ter­preted in any way but the or­gan­is­ers want to re­flect the cur­rent, ex­tra­or­di­nary times. En­tries need to be sub­mit­ted by July 27. All de­tails are found on pri­madon­nafes­ti­ The win­ner will be an­nounced in March 2021.

This year’s Pri­madonna fes­ti­val in Laf­fitts Hall, Pet­taugh, has been can­celled but there will be a vir­tual Pri­madonna fes­ti­val on the web­site this sum­mer. 2021’s pro­gramme of lit­er­a­ture, mu­sic, arts and cul­ture is set for July 30 – Au­gust 1, 2021.

Mean­while INK, the short new play com­pany, is invit­ing sub­mis­sions for its 2021 fes­ti­val. Sadly this year’s event in The Cut, Halesworth could not take place but any­one with East Anglian con­nec­tions is wel­come to sub­mit a play script of 30 min­utes or less, or a 15-minute ra­dio play, by the end of Au­gust. Se­lected plays will be per­formed at the fes­ti­val in April 2021.

Suf­folk Li­braries has de­vised a range of on­line ser­vices for peo­ple to en­joy books and events, and talk to li­brary staff.
