February feedback

Our next feedback session will be on Wednesday February 13th at the Rose and Crown pub at 14 North Parade Ave, Oxford OX2 6LX. From 7pm to 10.00pm


New year, new plans

Happy New Year to one and all.

This year we are going back to having feedback at the pub and events with speakers at Blackwell’s. We hope to start in March with another of Richard Skinner’s great workshops.

That means that Jan will be feedback and Feb will be feedback and planning for our new magazine. Dates to follow.

The March date is still to be decided, however, we have our dates for Blackwell’s for the rest of the year so please note:

Wednesday 29th May
Wednesday 31st July
Wednesday 25th September
Wednesday 25th November
Because of the rising costs we will have to raise the yearly fee this year. Would members object to £30 for the year or £5 for single events?

October Meeting: Feedback. November Meeting ‘How to research and write historical fiction’, with Dennis Hamley.

Our next meeting is a feedback session at Blackwell’s on Broad Street on Wednesday 24th October from 7-9pm.

Please bring a piece of writing to share if you have any, but remember we are limiting time to 10 minutes to read and 5 minutes for feedback. Someone will have a stop watch so it really is quite strict now in order to give everyone equal time.

If you have no new work, then just come along and give your feedback on the work presented.

We will also discuss plans for a literary magazine.
