It’s good to welcome some new ones. This offers an ideal opportunity for members who have not yet connected with their local network. It’s also good for regular members to have another opportunity to hook up.
Some interesting questions are asked.
· How exactly do you do an effective critique?
· What will I gain from membership of a Network group?
· Does it matter if I can’t get to every meeting?
Established members make some comments about what they like about being a Network member:
· It’s the master classes for me. They’re so good.
· I just love having the support of other writers. You know, just having someone to talk to about all of those rejections and when I get stuck.
· It’s often a chance to be sociable. I’m so often on my own with my writing.
A quick scoot around the tables makes it easy to see how different the networks are:
· The south-east is huge – so managing this is quite a challenge for the co-ordinator.
· London has plenty of opportunities. It’s easier for members to get to other writerly events. too.
· Wales is beginning to form.
· Can the north-east and the north-west join forces for some bigger events?
· The others are just busy, busy busy and buzzy, buzzy buzzy.
It’s all about networking. Have you joined yours yet?
