    Great to meet such passionate, friendly and diverse writers. In-depth and honest critique was given to the brave, gracious and talented people who shared their work. I'm sorry to be missing the next couple of meets but will be back.

    No directions, no proper response, no help from the person in charge. It would be nice to have things better organized. Frances

    Hi. I've just read a short story called Collision that was uploaded for critique and it was so good that I logged back in to see who had written it, but it's disappeared. I also can't find a member named Kalki (the name written on the bottom).
    Any ideas??
    Thanks.

    August 11, 2013

    • Mithun M.

      Thank you for your compliment*bows* Kalki is my pen name....hi

    Since I don't know if the pavilion will be open again, we'll go back to bookmunch I guess. *sigh*

    Hi there, just uploaded a short story, 'Isotopia', which is a bit grim in a clinical sense and probably 'R' rated. No comments here, please; look forward to seeing you on the 17th. Fx

  • Marianna S.

    -ahhh, I see, now it starts at the Pavilion again. I'll try to make it for this meeting, for I have a job now and I will be coming from Knowledge village where my class finishes at 6 pm....I'll try
