In response to member requests our meeting on Wednesday 16th October will be running another open mic. Members are invited share a piece of their work, which may be no more than 5 minutes long. Details below.
The work may have been published in the past, may be part of an ongoing work, or been hidden in a drawer waiting on an airing: the only criteria is that : it must be your own work.
Select any piece, but no more than 5 minutes’ worth. Come along, share your work and join the fun!
There will be tea/decaf tea/coffee available but if you prefer you may BYOB or soft drinks. There will be a £3 corkage charge for anyone drinking alcohol. To raise much needed funds, we will have our usual raffle, with the main prize being a Waterstones gift voucher. Donations of additional raffle prizes are much appreciated.
We're meeting as usual at the Project Cafe, in Renfrew Street which is just by Mandors the fabric shop and a stone's throw from the GFT, from 7.30pm.
Numbers taking part will be limited to 8, so it is essential to book your slot! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org asap to guarantee your place.
With thanks, The Committee
