THE creator of Winchester’s biggest literary event was given a surprise send-off last week.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Winchester held a surprise tea party for Barbara Large, former director of Winchester Writers’ Conference, at Abbey House on Wednesday, September 25.
Barbara founded the conference 33 years ago but retired earlier this year.
She is now working on a website for writers and continues as chairman of Hampshire Writers’ Society which she founded three years ago.
The party was attended by some of the city’s literary elite, including Keith Bennett who composed a poem in her honour.
