Well, another fortnight has flown by (whooosh!) and with it another month. Bye bye September – see you again next year. Which brings us to our first meet of October, a busy month for the Tunbridge Wells Writers with no less than three meetups on the calendar, the third of course being that extravagance of cake, creepy-crawlies and tales from the crypt that is FRIGHT NIGHT. Brrrrrr: was that just the chill winds of autumn shivering my timbers or could it be something more sinister altogether? Perhaps it’s Auntie Dolly trying to contact me from the grave? I hope not – we didn’t really have that much to talk about before she bit the big one, and I doubt a decade of pushing up the daisies will have provided many anecdotes of note for her to pass on… But I digress… Back to Tuesday’s meet:
We will be meeting, as usual, at 8:00pm in the bar area, and making our way to the function room around fifteen minutes later when the choristers who use it before us have had their fill of, erm, choristing. It would be lovely if you joined us.
Not too much on the agenda this time as it’s an ‘informal’ Tuesday, but there will probably be a few readers and a bit of feedback for those who want it. Readings of around 10 minutes max, please, and if inundated with potential readers we’ll either take a break for refreshments or roll a few over to the next meet. Other items up for discussion are the aforementioned Fright Night, for which we’ll be seeking names to add to the list of readers, and a bit of a chat about our annual Christmas “do” which is creeping up on us rapidly and won’t organise itself! Other than that it will be the usual free-for-all of lively discussion and literary witterings until we’re too tired to continue or the lovely lady behind the bar calls time.
If you are a writery type living in or within driving distance of Tunbridge Wells and you fancy being part of our group you will be made very welcome. You can contact us beforehand using the “Contact Us” or “Comment” boxes and we’ll round you up at the bar and point you in the right direction with appropriate introductions, or if you prefer the stealth approach you can just rock up and hurl yourself into the fray. There’s no formal membership (except for Fright Night which demands a contract written in blood) and no subs involved, so you have nothing (nuffink, if travelling from Tonbridge) to lose and everything to gain. Well, everything might be a bit of an overstatement, but it is jolly good fun for the most part, and a quick perusal of our “Tunbridge Wells Readers” section will show it can be quite productive too.
