Shortlisted for Circalit Competition

Lara has been shortlisted for her story The Real Me in the Broken Identities competition on Circalit.

You have to register with the website to view it but that will also mean you can upload your own work to the website should you so wish.

Lara's entry was shortlisted out of over 200 entries for which the standard was described as 'extremly high' by the judges - so congratulations to Lara for being adding to our growing list of success stories!

Fiction Markets

Hi there - I stumbled upon this resource today and found it hard not to spend too much time delving through the vast amount of data in it.

In any case if you are looking for a fiction market then this website provides daily updated lists of many markets and details them by how much they pay, how fast they respond, whether they respond personally etc.

Looks like a productive way to spend your lunch hour and could be helpful if you have that one piece of fiction you have yet to find a home for...!

Anyway..check out Doutrope's Digest and get submitting!

Next Meeting 21st October 2010

Thanks to Austin and Rosemary for hosting us last night. A very enjoyable evening, being plied with food and drink definately helps the manuscript reading process!

Next week as we are still homeless from the White Hart Hotel, we will be back at theBlack Lion in Fishpool street. It will be a normal manuscript evening.

For those of you interested some themed work we are looking to read out suitably spooky manuscripts on the 28th October so you have a fortnight to work on anything ghostly/horror related. You may find some inspiration here, home of spooky urban myths.

See you soon,

Going forward you should be able to find us by using the programme page above - it lists where we are planning to be, week by week.

Hope to see you soon!
