New issue of “Pocket Litter”

November 14th, 2017

The launch of a web-based “Pocket Litter” is taking a little longer than anticipated.

In the meantime we are about  to publish “Pocket Litter November 2017”, edited by Matt Robertson and publishing poetry by himself, Lawrence Upton and Xavier Velastin, poetry which has been presented at the workshop.

Launch date is 25 November 2017.

It will be available in a limited hard copy edition for attendees at the workshop; and a pdf version which can be sent via email for those who cannot attend the 25 November meeting.

Thanks to Matt Robertson.

Poem from the WF workshop published

November 8th, 2017

I thought you might like to know the poem I brought along to the last Writers Forum just went up on the International Times website: http://internationaltimes.it/us-air-power/

Updates to website

October 13th, 2017

The schedule page has been updated.
Apologies for odd presentation. They keep upgrading the software and making it harder to use; and the instructions are illiterate.
The page code needs to be rewritten and there is no time to do that now.
The new venue is reachable from Warren Street or Goodge Street — or other stations of course, most of which are a longer walk!
email us on info at wfuk dot org dot uk if you are coming

WF Workshop Autumn 2017

October 11th, 2017

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I think and hope that our new programme is becoming clear.

I am sorry that it is so late in the week.

I list it below.

I hope to see those of you who can make it this Saturday.

General comments:

NB 15:00 till 17:00 is likely to become our norm.

15:00 till 17:00 suits the venue. And it seems fine to me.

2017 dates

Re Saturday 14 October 2017, the timing has had to be changed. We are now due to meet 4 pm until a little before 6pm

Similarly with Saturday 25 November 2017, when we meet 3 pm until just before 5 pm

The third date this autumn (9 December) has been cancelled in favour of 16 December 2017 meeting 3 pm until 5 pm.

That’s a little late into the Mad Season, I know; but I hope it’s ok for you. (Let me know!)

12 August 2017

July 17th, 2017

If, by end 21 July 2017, no one has expressed a wish to attend a workshop 12 August 2017, then the idea will be abandoned. Perhaps it always was pushing my luck to try for that.

WF Workshop restarts

July 12th, 2017

WF Workshop has restarted, after too long a break. We had a very enjoyable time last Saturday. (8 July 2017)

July / August is often a poor time for the workshop so I am especially pleased. However, the time of year is having some effect and we could benefit from hearing more from you.

The next meeting, which is still on but that based on very few responses, is 22 July 2017. From 3 – 5 pm at King and Queen Foley Street near to Warren Street and to Goodge Street

After that, it’s 12 August 2017. And August has long been worse for attendance and availability than July. At present, there is no time or venue. That is because I have not booked a room. That is because only one other person has said they’re coming. (That could mean anything but I don’t do mind-reading.) The sooner that I hear from people who might want to attend, the more likely it is that we shall be able to book a room. It gets less likely with every day that passes.

After that, we take a break for September.

Talking to others with similar tasks to mine, I find that my inability to get a response is not unique… Likewise the habit of people changing their minds and not saying.

WF Workshop needs to hear from you if you are interested in attending. Let us put you on our mailing list and then we shall be able to tell you of any changes to the schedule

Hallo again

May 21st, 2017

Apologies for our silence.

It has been a hard time.

We met considerable misfortunes and did not react well.

WF is on the move again.

More soon

 

Lawrence
