Merry Christmas everyone! And a big welcome to Bronwin and Matt who attended their first meeting last night.
Excellent meeting with thirteen attendees and five pieces of writing to critique. We also enjoyed copious quantities of mince pies and hot mulled wine. There were four submissions discussed during the meeting itself and a fifth over at Common afterwards. That leaves a clear DropBox for next month’s submissions.
Thanks to everyone who attended last night’s meeting. We sometimes see a drop-off in numbers around this time of year so it was great to see you all. Dedication to the cause!
We should be back at MadLab for next month’s meeting but keep an eye on the Facebook group for details.
Update 26th November: we will be at Federation House again for the December and January meetings.
Thanks to everyone who attended last night’s meeting and a hearty welcome to Eliza Chan who joined us for the first time. Eliza is a former member of the Glasgow SF group and writes fantasy / weird fiction.
Before we start with the critiques I’d like to remind everyone that we should be back at MadLab next month but please keep checking this website or the Facegroup group for details nearer the time.
Another busy meeting last night with twelve people attending. I’d like to welcome our latest recruit, Malcolm. We’re looking forward to reading your work over the coming months.
With eight submissions in DropBox we obviously had a lot to get through and we did well to work through four submissions, starting with Eric’s piece which was carried over from last month’s meeting. Continue reading
We now have a confirmed alternate venue during the planned refurbishment work at MadLab. This is
likely confirmed to affect the next two few meetings:
- Wednesday 10th September
- Wednesday 8th October
- Wednesday 12th November
- Wednesday 10th December
- Wednesday 14th January
We will be meeting at New Federation House which is just a few minutes walk away. I need a volunteer to wait at MadLab until 7.15pm to direct people to the new venue. Then you would come along and join us at New Federation House. Let me know if you’re interested. Continue reading
Hello again everyone! Well, we had a busy meeting last night with eleven people attending and six submissions to discuss. I’d like to welcome three new members: Rob, Chris and Colin. You all gave great feedback and we’re looking forward to reading your work at future meetings.
We did well to get through four submissions last night with so many people attending. That would have left two pieces to carry over to next month but Damien explained that he won’t be along for a while so he instead decided to take copies of notes from people. That leaves one piece, from Eric, to carry forward to next month. His work will be discussed before we look at any others. Continue reading
Another great meeting last night with nine people attending. I’d like to welcome Katherine — we’re looking forward to reading your steampunk stories at future meetings.
Apologies from Shakeel who messaged me the day beforehand (which I then promptly forgot — sorry!) to say that he wouldn’t be able to make this month’s meeting. His submission will be kept in Dropbox to discuss at the next meeting.
Quick reminder to members to please arrive on time if possible. We started about 20 minutes late last night. Saying that, with nine of us attending, we still managed to work through five pieces, though we did finish rather later than usual at around 10pm.
