As part of the March 2018 Essex Book Festival, Metal transformed Chalkwell Hall into a Pop-Up Essex Writers House for the whole month.

Conceived as curated programme but also partly as a campaign for better support and more visibility for the writers and literary life of Essex – events across the month included:-
