Avoiding 'Wind Up' some ideas

The Chairman's Recent Message

With effect from the April competition – 250 word, on-line, flash fiction – members who are not on line may send me hard copy - even in pencil if you use it as a preference – to the address shown below and elsewhere in this magazine. I will then scan your manuscript and turn it into what is called a jpeg (a photocopy, if you will, of your original) which will be added to the booklet which is sent to the on-line membership, and the judges – it is not practical or cost effective to send the booklet to all members since we are not clear who is or who is not on line and, frankly, the work load would make such an approach out of the question. But in the way outlined above, ALL are now at least included in access to the competitions and the chance to win prizes.


Frequent Contact from the Chair.
The Chair is also the Webmaster and in contact very regularly with the Committee. This will enhance his  direct contacts with the  on-line membership. In addition there will be one more general letter, using normal mail, when things are more settled, but from then on all universal contact will be in the form of the four issues of The Author. All members will, of course also be able to follow news on this site.
