This month’s quest was to ready stories to enter into the upcoming Salisbury Writers’ Festival Short Story Competition. We have til early next month to whip some of our tales into shape.
Today we critiqued five stories – fantasy, horror and steampunk – pondering feline mysteries, revealing interstellar visitors, time travelers and pesky fairies. Much of our discussions were on setting, description and the ever-present show don’t tell.
Spec Fic Chic members were also invited to participate in an exciting endeavour mooted for inclusion in The Fringe, 2016. You will just have to wait for the big reveal next year.
We had the pleasure of the return of one of our founding members today. We are again complete.
