    Ben –

    Thanks for this. I wanted to connect a lot more with Greenbelt Lit than I ended up managing this year. I managed most of the GB Writers Network meet-up, although I had to leave early so missed any conclusions that may have arisen from it, and I did about four hours worth of workshops (Mia’s was immense fun).

    If I had caught you at Greenbelt, I would have suggested that the one thing Greenbelt needs is an open mic night of the fiction / poetry / literature kind. I wandered all weekend with my short stories with me and didn’t see much opportunity to read them to anyone. It seems like a wasted opportunity.

    I’m willing to help run / compere an open mic event for next year’s Greenbelt. It would be great fun and a good chance to offer a stage to up-and-coming writers.

    Meanwhile, do keep me updated on the Greenbelt Writers Network. Right then… time to download some talks!

    (Oh and in case you’re wondering who I am, I was the guy that used the ‘wrestling match between a fish and a bicycle’ analogy at the GB Network meeting on the Friday!)
