Meeting: 8th October

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.

Meeting: 8th October

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.

Meeting: 10th September

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.

Meeting: 10th September

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

Temporary Venue

We now have a confirmed alternate venue during the planned refurbishment work at MadLab. This is likely confirmed to affect the next two meetings:

  • Wednesday 10th September
  • Wednesday 8th October

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

Meeting: 13th August

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.

Meeting: 13th August

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

Meeting: 9th July

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.

Meeting: 9th July

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.

Meeting: 11th June

Another busy meeting this month with eleven attendees. Just a quick reminder for potential visitors reading this post to get in touch before you attend to allow us to arrange access to DropBox. You should also familiarise yourself with our house rules. Saying that, it was very nice to meet Graham, who dropped into the meeting. I hope you understood a little of what was going on!

Apologies from Eric who wasn’t able to attend due to a cold. Hope you get better soon. Your submission, which has already been carried over one month, will be carried over again to next month’s meeting.

Meeting: 11th June

Before we look at the critiques just a couple of reminders about house rules . . .

Meeting: 14th May

This month’s meeting marks a very special moment: our 4th anniversary! There was cake (see below).

Our group continues to thrive and it only does so with your continued enthusiasm and support. I’m certainly looking forward to the next four years. Perhaps we should plan something for our fifth anniversary next year? Group trips to one or more conventions? Perhaps an anthology? Have a think and let me know. We can have a pub chat after a meeting sometime, but if we’re going to do something we need to start planning it now.

Meeting: 14th May

A belated welcome to James who actually attended last month’s meeting whilst I was away. Welcome also to Shakeel and Len. Before we look at last night’s critiques a quick note on . . .

House Rules Continue reading
