Another Move!

After two meetings at the Frog and Parrot pub, the Writing Buddies are on the move again.  This time, we hope the move will be permanent.
   The next meeting, on Friday 3 June at 2pm will be at the Southampton Old Bowling Green clubhouse. 
   We will welcome Lisa Scullard talking about laying out a paperback for publication.  This follows on from her talk about e-book publishing at the last meeting.
   If you are a writer, you are welcome to join us.  The first meeting is free.

New Venue!

After a year at the Central Library in Southampton, it is sad to go but go we must! Thank you to all the staff at the Central Library for having us.  You have been wonderful!

We have moved to the Frog and Parrot pub, Above Bar, Southampton.  Meetings are back to our preferred starting time of 2pm on the first Friday of each month.  See you there!
