WF Workshop venue

June 2nd, 2016

Since our last meeting, Goldsmiths College has decided to cancel future meetings of WF Workshop on its premises, including those bookings already accepted and confirmed.

This, as you may imagine, has caused us some difficulty and the meeting of 4 June 2016 has been cancelled.

There will be a meeting on 25th June 2016 although the venue is not yet known.

Those on the WF mailing lists will be informed first and then information will appear on this blog.

Attendance at workshops

May 18th, 2016
We'd like you to attend workshops regularly; but we understand that it is often not
possible. So we ask you to let us know if you will be coming or not. 

Why do we ask you to say if you are coming or not?

We do not want too big a group because it makes things unworkable. On the other hand, 
too small a group is difficult too.
Also, some members of the workshop come from great distance and we do not want 
to waste their time and fare money.
Therefore we ask people to let us know if they can make it; and to let us know 
if they'll miss, with plenty of notice. In that way, we can estimate likely numbers 
and cancel if necessary. That rarely happens. Very rarely.

It is realised that problems arise, illnesses come on suddenly; but it also seems 
that mass disaster of that sort rarely occurs, so that, with good will, it should be 
possible to maintain some balance in attendance, which is not happening at present.

Workshop Saturday 6 February 2016

February 9th, 2016

A good workshop which was doubly pleasing as a number of regulars were facing difficulties and one a crisis!

We had a performance in development using Max MSP. That’s only the second time that’s happened. It was extremely interesting and lead to interesting talk.

There were two voice poems.

One selection had been written by one person; and two others tested the score.

The other selection had been written by two people collaborating; and they performed their own work.

There was a selection of solo poems which had just been written and are still subject to change.

The next workshop is on Saturday 20 February 2016 in Room RHB268 Goldsmiths College. Join the mailing list if you are serious about participating

email problems

October 5th, 2015

Hopefully I don’t need to send a bulk email on this. We’ll see.

Those who are on the wf mailing list, certainly those who were at the last workshop, will know that my personal email at gmail was hacked. HACKED AT GMAIL, I BELIEVE.

I’ve told them but it is against their belief system to believe me.

Those on the mailing list will know that I tend to handle wf correspondence via my own gmail account regardless of which email address what I am replying to came from. (Sorry about that syntax).

Unfortunately, gmail, having allowed me to be hacked and having ignored my complaint, have finally taken note of the hacking and decided that I am at fault so that now bulk emails from my account are blocked.

It takes hours to complain. Literally hours. They make it difficult, I am sure, to discourage complaints.

So I have sent out this week’s age from a different account.

That’s all.
