December Writers' Group

Please bring your work and/or your sharpest critiquing skills.  If you'd like written feedback then bring plenty of copies, depending on numbers.

A minor gripe-ette: last session we had over 20 people saying they were coming, then only half turned up - which can be inconvenient for the restaurant staff.  As we near Xmas, places tend to get a bit more crowded and so please, if you change your RSVP can you let me know so I can adjust the table numbers.  THANKS!

    Hello, I'd like to share that I'm giving a concert of Benjamin Britten pieces for vocal quartet on Friday December 14th at the Atelier de la Main d'Or in the 12th. Anyone who would like to please contact me for more information, thanks, Constance

    I arrive back from the South on the 11th but not sure I can make it the 12th; will there be another meet up before X-mas?

    To question from Michelle - no there isn't a fee, but please do buy a drink at least from the cafe. Thanks,

    Regarding gripe-ette: I agree. In fact I decided not to sign up due to the huge number of people... Maybe some of those no-shows were discouraged by the large attendance (which doesn't excuse them for not saying they weren't coming). I don't know what the solution would be; perhaps limiting the group to 8-10 and requiring a firm commitment, like, three strikes you're out or something?

      Yep - good point. We've tried limiting the numbers in the past though generally everyone gets to read and the most I've ever had to accommodate was 10 readers, as often people just come to listen. I'm not sure about the requiring committment bit - as this is essentially run as an open group, plus monitoring how many times people do a no-show would be somewhat labour-intensive! Any other people have thoughts on this?
