Andrey Pissantchev: Any Sci-Fi/speculative fiction-minded people interested in going to next year's WorldCon? It's in Dublin in August 2019: https://dublin2019.com/
They give out the Hugo awards there so it's pretty damn prestigious.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in this.. ‘All of the World is a Stage’ We are looking for creative individuals (Artists, writers, musicians) based in Yorkshire to take part in a showcase/exhibition called All of the World is a Stage. There are no limits with content, as the aim of this event is to simply share original content. Both the organisers of this event are passionate about art and writing and we would like to enable others to show their work to the public. As it stands we are planning to hold the event in spring 2019, at Leftbank Leeds however this is subject to change. It is open to anyone however we are conscious of mature content so we would prefer ages 17 and over. If you are interested in participating, know anyone who would like to or have any questions, please contact us as soon as possible. Email: Kaurandbaleemcreatives@gmail.com IG: @kaurandbaleemcreatives

Adam Wolstenholme: Thanks for a great do, Mark and family. Looking a bit thin on the ground for Thursday. Might a critique work better? Any thoughts?

Kat: The perfect organiser!
On a different note - I risked putting in a reasonably long piece because there shouldn't be too many submissions today and I'm keen to get your feedback on as much of this novel as possible. If it's too long feel free to stop at any natural breakpoint. Thanks!

Dan Collins: Hey Mark, so sorry I couldn't make it on Saturday - I've been really busy at work and completely forgot about having a social life! I haven't been logging into this page, I remembered about your party, logged in hoping I hadn't missed the date, only to discover it I was too late. Thanks for hosting and I will definitely make sure I don't miss the next social! Cheers. Dan
