Well, another fortnight has positively whizzed by and another meetup beckons. Not entirely sure what’s on the menu this time round, but there will almost certainly be a few readings at the head of the evening (5-10 mins max, please readers!) with feedback. More news on that and some ideas for a more in-depth feedback group on the night!
Wednesday, of course, sees another Word Up happening at the Forum. Some of us will be going for the double (two nights out in a row – heaven forfend!), both as “Slammers” (It’s not a genre, you know, it’s a movement…) and as clappers-but-not-whoopers in the audience. A bit of a Ladies Night this time round with headliners Sophia Walker and Sea Sharp, but none the worse for that I’ll warrant.
I’ve heard on the grapevine that there may be other exciting news from Carolyn Gray, but as she’s keeping mum until Tuesday I can offer nothing more than this tantalising teaser. It’ll probably be extremely interesting, though. Probably.
Finally, a quick reminder that the NEXT meet on March 22nd will be a (slightly) more formal affair, with a presentation from Glyn Harper on Planning & Structuring a Novel to kick off the action.
Well that – save any surprises I’ve not been told about – is about it for this week, but once all of the above meat has been taken care of we will be regrouping for the tasty dessert that is general chit-chat on all things literary and non-literary, stopping off at all points between.
If you’re a writery type living in or around Tunbridge Wells please feel free to join us. You’ll find us in the bar from around 8:00 and in the Library room from about 8:15 onward. Just click on the meetup date on the event calendar for full directions to St John’s Yard.
