Our Next Meeting...

Our next meeting takes place on Tuesday 19th February and starts at 7.30pm at the Cafe Libra at Felixstowe Library.

The assignment is to write 500 words on "REVENGE", a subject that should deliver an array of payback tales. Also on the agenda will be the two 1,500 word open themed subjects that will be read by Dick and Tony.

Good luck to our friends Gordon and Rexie who celebrate their silver wedding anniversary this weekend.

Our weblog at http://nar8or.blogspot.com gives you details of our own Bill Budner writing competition that I hope you will be entering, free of charge but with cash prize incentives for the first three in both the adult and the children's section.

There is also Ted Walters International Short Story and Writing Competition some lovely news about young Liam Fairhurst ... and some from Caz too. So scroll down and catch up on the news.

At the end of the message there is the BBC Writersroom newsletter full of links to amazing information. Worth a read!

Oh and don't forget that Dick is giving a talk at the Ipswich Record Office next Saturday on the ghosts of Landguard Fort. Details will follow shortly.

Hope to see you all on Tuesday,

Until then,

Keep Scribbling!
