Please give me all the morning options that you can, so that I can share the available places around the group. Upper case names are already certain of that place. I will settle the January 2019 date as early as I can, since it is clearly already an attractive choice.

Dear Kelston Workshop
On Saturday 24th March there will be an opportunity for us to perform our Kelston Barn compilation poem during the afternoon session of the newly formed Bath Writers and Artists Group. The venue will be one of the first floor rooms in the BRLSI in Queen Square, Bath.
THESE ARE THE KELSTON WRITERS WHO HAVE SAID ALREADY THAT THEY CAN COME Margaret Heath, Andrew Lawrence, Graeme Ryan, William Heath, Conor Whelan, Ann Preston
We will have the use of microphones, and could accompany the reading with music and/or a photographic slideshow created by landscape photographer Matt Prosser.
I am missing some emails of last year’s participants. If you see that a friend from the workshop is missing, would you please pass this message on?
And guests will be welcome, OF COURSE.
