Hi John

 

It would be great if you could come. It is held in the Events Room, Waterstones on Deansgate in central Manchester at 2pm. I will send out any submissions ahead of the meeting so that we can crit them. People normally scribble some notes on them and then discuss. If you send me your e-mail I'll add you to my North West e-mail group so you get all the information.

 

Thanks Steph
