Our Next Meeting

Our next meeting....

....takes place this coming Tuesday 4th August at 7.30pm in The Room At The Top at Felixstowe Library. Please note that latecomers need to be aware that it takes a couple of minutes to answer the doorbell so please be patient!

The Scribblers have been affected by cancer in the past with their own personal tragedies and deeply moved by the loss of young Jack Wilkinson and, more recently, Liam Fairhurst. Yesterday Suffolk folk, along with those from the North East of England, most especially football fans cannot but be moved by the loss of Sir Bobby Robson. Their are many charities raising funds to find a cure for and fight cancer - so once our Anthology is launched profits from its sale will go to East Anglia's Children's Hospice which cares for and supports the families of children with life-threatening conditions. This is the charity that young Jack supported and raised funds for. So please remember to purchase our anthology and help to support such a caring charity.

Happier news comes from Sue who has received her free copy and payment (yes, she did say payment!!) for 3 poems that have just been published by Macmillan in an anthology called READ ME AT SCHOOL. It's aimed at 7 - 11 year olds, so if anyone has children / grandchildren / nephews, nieces, friends etc. in that age group they might be interested in purchasing a copy. Available in all good book shops, as they say, priced at £7.99. Sue says "it's a bit weird to see her name in amongst the well-known children's poets! Still, it's been a long time coming, as you all well know." Well done Sue.

The anthology has now closed for submissions so, if you missed out this time, sorry! Now for the hard work by Barry, Jane and Les editing and preparing it for the printers. Thanks to everyone who has submitted work, and to the our dedicated trio for their ongoing commitment.

The 500 word homework assignment is "INFINITE" whilst Trish and Dave have agreed to write the 1,500 words open themed work.

The mystery is... who will chair the meeting? Find out on the night!

Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday,

Keep Scribbling!
