so today i went to a meeting at the basement club with two other members and one staff member. we talked about the creative writing booklet we are going to be publishing. we were going to launch it in february on valentines day. we had picked a name for it, its going to be called beyond words. today we decided to extend the deadline for submissions. the deadline had been november 25th and now its January sixth. a lot of members have already submitted their work for consideration in the book. we can each submit up to 3 pieces of writing, either stories, poetry or free writes. as the editorial committee myself and the other two members have to make all the decisions about the design of the book, so today Bruno asked me to type up the submissions we have recieved so far. we’re really pushing for more members to submit work. we are going to launch the book to family and friends first, and there is going to also be a copy in accessible format so if any of you are interested in reading it let me know and when it is published i can get a copy of it to you. we decided to ask people to make a small donation to shine, which is the overall organisation that runs the basement club. i’m really excited about this project. i’ve already submitted my pieces, 3 poems. and from what i typed up so far today there are a lot of very talented members who can write very well. we are also going to put art in the book. The launch date is now the 16th of March all going to plan. In the meantime though we have a lot of decisions to make and an outside person has to pick the best submissions to go into the book. Unfortunately not everyones work can be picked. Just really excited to be part of such an amazing project.
