Folks,

GREAT NEWS!

The first Writers' Group short story contest has now kindly been sponsored by John Moore of Mastermind, the Knowledge Village-based business consultancy. John is a long-term member of the Writers' Group, and is about to publish his very first novel!

This now means, thanks to John's generosity, that ENTRY IS FREE - and the prize money stands at a veery worthwhile AED500!!

We have a few entries, and now a panel of four judges - John included - so if you don't have plans this weekend, why not get your thinking cap on and GET WRITING?

Good luck!

 

Best Wishes

With more than 800 members, do we need to advertise it on Facebook? If each member mentions it on their own Facebook page (those who have one) that would be a massive audience!

A 20 word short story would be a very impressive feat - do it!

Guys, conducting the meet ups at Mall Cafe's and Food Courts is not entirely conducive for free flowing conversation and serious discussion. We witnessed this with the last one at MOE, despite the fabulous company!
Might I suggest "Century Village" for the March 28th Meet up. It's sort of a median venue to everyone; less crowded at 7 pm and we could take in the good weather whilst it lasts!

Hey My story is near finished too. Can we possibly make it around 6:30pm so that we can get off earlier as well. Some of us have young kids to come back to.
