Readings for the Tuesday night group are now booked up into May. This is in many ways a good thing; it shows that not only is the group lively and busy, but also that there’s lots of writing going on. However it’s also clear that we need more capacity for getting people the critiques on their own work that they need. The idea of the group was always to maintain a balance between community, craft and critique, and I think that balance is more or less right at the moment, so I don’t want to tinker with Tuesday nights too much. One option would be to add another critique week each month, but there wasn’t much enthusiasm for that last time it was suggested, and it only adds one other slot every month. I’m also not keen on the idea of splitting the group, or trying to set up another night along the same lines of Tuesdays. So I’m throwing it open to suggestions: how can we make sure everyone gets the opportunity to have their work critiqued when they need it, without spoiling what we’ve already got? All thoughts are welcomed- be creative, daft even, That’s sometimes where the best ideas come from.
