Manchester Speculative Fiction

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.

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.

So on with the critiques…

As already mentioned above, Shakeel wasn’t able to attend so we will be looking at his submission first at the next meeting before we proceed to looking at others for the month.

I still haven’t received any information on the planned refurbishment work at MadLab but it’s all in hand. An alternate venue, if required, will be provided. Check our Facebook group nearer the time for more information.

After last night’s meeting we headed around to the Marble Bar for a chat on various topics that included Ingress, publishing agents and MA courses. There was also some Jenga.

Next meeting: Wednesday 13th August

See you all there!
