Kensington Palace anthology launch at Kensington Central Library

Kensington and Chelsea libraries and Historic Royal Palaces recently joined together to run a creative writing course.

The Tri-Borough Stock Team and Kensington Palace ran fortnightly sessions led by author, Tamara Pollock.  These sessions were aimed at beginners who wished to develop their writing talent and create original stories inspired by characters and tales from the history of Kensington Palace.  At the end of the course 13 participants submitted stories which were collected together and published in an anthology entitled ‘Stories From Kensington Palace’.

On Thursday  23 May the writers came together to celebrate the publication of the anthology at a launch event held at Kensington Central Library.   The boxes of the newly printed and just delivered books were opened and the authors saw their work in print for the very first time.
