Last parish notes of the year!
November 2013 STF
We finished the year with an extremely well-attended last formal session last week in the Jolly Judge. On behalf of Richard amd myself, and indeed of everyone who has submitted their non-fiction work for discussion at a Stranger Than Fiction meeting this year, thank you to everyone who has contributed to the conversation. The chance to get supportive feedback and criticism from your fellow non-fiction writers is so useful, and my head has been buzzing ever since last Thursday with the suggestions of all those who turned out.
December 2013 STF
As advertised, there will be no formal Stranger Than Fiction meeting in December – we’ve all got too much else to do, I’m sure. Instead, there will again be a Christmas get-together, to which STF mailing list members only are invited. Get in touch if you’d like to be added to the mailing list for future events – we try to limit ourselves to a couple of emails a month, so you won’t be inundated, just gently reminded about forthcoming meetings.
January 2014 STF
The next regular session of Stranger Than Fiction will be on Thursday 23rd January 2014, as usual at 7pm in the Jolly Judge (although if our numbers get any bigger we may have to start looking for a bigger pub). Nobody has offered a piece of their work for feedback yet, so if you’d like to put something forward, get in touch. Ideally you’ll have been to an earlier STF session so you know what to expect.
Edinburgh Literary Salon
A reminder that tonight, Tuesday 26th November, is the last Edinburgh Literary Salon of the year. Drop in to the Wash Bar any time after 6pm and meet lots of interesting people, all with a serious interest in the published word. It’s like Stranger Than Fiction with added fiction and less feedback.
Hope to see you at the Salon, or at the Stranger Than Fiction Christmas get-together in a couple of weeks, or at a future STF session. Season’s greetings, and good luck with all your non-fiction writing now and in 2014.
