Reading No. 3 Venue Possibilities, Possibilities

We’ll be scoping out The Academy of Letters’ Writers House today for a chance to see what it’d be like if we had our reading there. Aside from the fact that it’s a little farther away from the mostly central locations of our previous readings, (it’s in the Shifa Hospital area), it might be an excellent place. To answer the “might”s, we’re making our way there.

In other news, the mass marketing campaign mentioned much, much earlier is moving towards a green light. We’re drafting action plans for that process, thinking about advertising our website as well as our readings and generally subdividing responsibilities in the forum. While as currently, our moderators are responsible for the entire forums, they’ll be responsible for specific forums, where their word will be law (no, no I jest. My word will still be law! :D). But you get the gist of it.

Again, we’re asking local designers out there, or who know other locals, to please email us in (my email address is in the profile) and let us know whether or not they’d be interested. I have an international guy, but since we don’t know the current going price, I can’t be sure whether it’s perfect or overpriced. So come on, peeps! Show us that creativity you have holed within you!

Not much else going on. Reading’s in July. The email went out yesterday. If you’re interested in sending in your work, member or not, please do so to . Surprise me! 🙂


Reading Goes Through Without A Hitch

Not only did it go through without a hitch, it was a smashing success! We had twelve writers in attendance, and four pieces to go through. Unlike before, where it took so much time focusing on just one piece, we made it through each, and even introduced two new members into our fold. The full details are up here, so go ahead and check ’em out.

Next reading’s planned for July (primarily because a few won’t be available in August), with a possible venue set for The Writers House in the Academy of Letters; the Editor of the English section was in attendance at our reading. But read the whole thing at the link above.

Because we’re adopting the whole open door philosophy when it comes to submission of pieces to the reading, we’d appreciate if you could keep those pieces coming and they’ll make it to the reading on a first come, first serve basis. Do not fear: each piece sent in will have its say. As always, material must be sent in to

That’s it.
