A creative boost

Congratulations!!

Can I get a whoop whoop?! Just me then? Ok.

A hearty ‘congratulations’ is a great opening to an email, and reading on to find out the Rochester Literature Festival has been short listed in two categories in the Kent Digital Awards 2015 gave me a bigger boost (fleetingly) than chocolate.

You can read all about the awards and see the full list of finalists on the Kent Digital Awards website.
