An AGM may not be anyone's idea of a great night out. Yet this is actually our general forum and opportunity to have a say in how things are run. The Committee is, after all, made up of its own members, we consider ourselves forward-thinking and open to new ideas, so please come along and let us hear from you.
Julian is a longstanding partner in the Blake-Friedmann literary agency.
This is a members-only competition. Bring along a printed story of not more that 250 words. It must have a title, although this is not part of the word count. Stories will be read aloud anonymously by a single reader to ensure a uniformity of delivery. Members will then cast votes to determine the winner. The prize is a box of chocolates.
