Next workshop and related concert

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

I regret that I must cancel the next Writers Forum Workshop.

The meeting of 31st March, originally advertised, became impossible; and it has not been possible to organise an alternative

I am very unhappy about this and apologise to you all.

The next meeting is Saturday 5th May 2012.

It is hoped that Benedict Taylor will be present.

Contributions to POCKET LITTER are still invited with a view to publishing on 26th May 2012. Please get the work in on time. And don’t be shy

Benedict is also participating in the event at Goldsmiths at New Cross the night before, as is Tina Bass

There’ll be Lawrence Upton, Tina Bass, Benedict Taylor (viola), Tina Krekels (saxophone) and John Levack Drever (electronics / spatialisation)

Last workshop / next workshop

Monday, March 12th, 2012

We met on Saturday 10th March 2012. Numbers were noticeably depleted as illness and various domestic crises coincided. So it goes.

We did have an enjoyable workshop; and, as well as new writing, there were rewarding experiments in performing both Bob Cobbing and Gertrude Stein.

It is intended that the next workshop will be on 24th March; but we await confirmation from the venue management. I think it will be ok; so I hope that you will be prepared to be there. A further message will be sent.

A new issue of POCKET LITTER is being prepared and that is open to anyone who has attended in the last year.

Regulars may expect to receive a consultation email on next year’s meeting schedule shortly.

All the best

Lawrence

Next workshop

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

The next workshop will be this Saturday coming on 10th March 2012. All on the mailing list have been informed. All welcome.

Two other things.

Firstly, the software which runs this blog has just been updated and the working area (my term) looks like nothing on Earth. Forgive me / us / wf if things go wrong.

Secondly, I have resurrected a few pages from a previous wf website. I don’t know how interesting they are. And inevitably they refer to the mindless time wasting that occurred about 18 months ago.

Anyway they are here

PS I am underwhelmed by the way this system works now; but I imagine I’ll get used to it, just in time for the next change.

Checking my own link, I see that one of the pages is centred when it should not be and the main page has lost its colour. That will be dealt with.

I must go now. There is a loud baby imitating a parrot

See you Saturday

Lawrence
