Six word stories

Apparently Ernest Hemingway once bet that he could write a novel in six words. He wrote “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” And won the bet.

So, can you write a novel in six words? Multistory, the West Bromwich-based community arts organisation challenge you to do just that on www.sixwordstories.co.uk - I’ll warn you now; it’s highly addictive!

My offering: Aliens landed. Hung round. Went home.

A good, old-fashioned coffee morning

Our next coffee morning meet-up is this Friday 16th May and we’ve relocated it to a new venue – Saint Caffe on St Paul’s Square, Birmingham. We’ll be there between about 8:30am and 10am so feel free to drop in whenever you’re around.

There’s no agenda or anything; it’s really just a chance to have a chat to people about what’s going on in and around the city. Everyone’s welcome, there’s free WIFI if you need it ... and the coffee is fantastic!
