Merry Christmas everyone! Last night was our final meeting of the year. We had eleven people attending and five submissions to critique. There was a bountiful supply of mince pies, mulled wine, orange juice, carrot cake and some rather spicy home-made tuna snacks. We also had a surprise visit from the MadLab Mouse. High drama! We completed the critiques on four submissions so Ian’s piece will carry over to the next Tuesday meeting in January.

Before I get started with the critiques I just want to repeat the announcement made on Facebook yesterday that we have just donated £90 to MadLab. These are your donations from throughout the last year, so well done to everyone who was able to give money in these financially challenging times. And please don’t worry if you weren’t able to donate. You can always help MadLab by boosting the signal for their revenue earning courses during the coming year with a share here or tweet there:

On with the critiques!

What an amazing year. Several of our members have been published, some for the very first time. We’ve also published our own anthology. It will be interesting to see what 2016 will bring. We have Eastercon coming to Manchester and who knows what else? For now I’ll sign off with another Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you all in January.

Next meeting: Wednesday 13th January
