THE NEXT MEETING

Felixstowe Scribblers

THE NEXT MEETING

A reminder that our next meeting at the Felixstowe Library will be this coming Tuesday 18th July at 7.30 pm. The homework theme was set as around 500 words on HEATWAVE with the two 1,500 open topics to be read by Alex and Mavis.

BBC RADIO SUFFOLK WEBSITE

The BBC Radio Suffolk website is waiting for our 70-100 word short stories to be considered for online publication - sorry no payments, just prestige! - Currently I have two members who have sent work in to me for forwarding on. The suggested subjects are :

first love … dark secret … best journey … bad luck … funniest minute of my life …

THAT PREMIERE...

The Premiere of The Lost Sock last Sunday was an unrivalled success with in excess of 400 folk attending. If you were there I am certain you will have enjoyed the afternoon, if you weren't then you could buy the video, complete with out takes, from giles@felixstowetv.co.uk at the give-away price of £8.

There are two video reports that can be viewed on Felixstowe TV.

WOODBRIDGE LIBRARY

Another success was our visit to Woodbridge Library as part of the BBC RaW campaign, There were nearly three dozen prospective writers, staff and members of the Scribblers in attendance and there is a lot of interest in setting up a Woodbridge group. Our own Online Membership has increased since then, Thanks to all the scribblers who came along.

VOTE NOW

A reminder that Voting for the Online Scribblers writing competition closes on Monday 17th July at 18.00 BST with the winner being announced simultaneously in the forum and at the Felixstowe Scribblers meeting Tuesday the 18th July. If you haven't already voted then time is running out! Why not vote now?

NEW ONLINE COMPETITIONS

Two further Online Scribblers competitions are currently open for entries. These are a poetry and a writing (Short story) competition each with the same SUMMER theme. Closing date for these entries will be 31st August. One significant improvement is that entries from now on will be anonymous (subject to review)- as requested at the Scribblers last meeting.

MORAG

Morag's article is published in the August edition of the Writers' News. Well worth a read - and there's a picture too!

Hope to see you at the meeting on Tuesday,

Keep Scribbling
