The annual Short Story Competition is judged this year by Ingrid Jendrzejewski who has given us a presentation in May, 2018.

Ingrid received a BFA in Creative Writing and a BA in English literature and has since won 11 writing competitions, judged three short-story contests, had around 100 pieces published, and been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, Vestal’s VERA Award, and twice for Best Small Fictions.

Tuesday, 5. Mar 2019 - Annual General Meeting

Of all our meetings, this is the gem,
the much looked-forward-to AGM.
 
Well, yes, there will be a little formal business, but don’t cower at home in fear. There is only one vacant Committee post, that of Publicity Officer. It involves writing a press release about those general meetings when we have speakers, and once a year trying to get on local radio stations, together with one or two members, to talk about what we do. Quite a lot of fun really.
 
At the meeting we shall decide the shape of the next Short Story Competition. For those who enjoy a little light reading I attach the Agenda.
 
The Quiz
 
Here is a starter for nothing.
 
fabaceous is it? :
(a) 1960s slang term of approval.
(b) describing delicate gold and enamel ware.
(c) bean-shaped.
 
There will be 26 such questions. Of course, use of smart phones, or miniaturised copies of Chambers Dictionary, are strictly forbidden. Each member of the winning team will receive a box of chocolates.
