Just in from Alison Scott and the newsletter team:

There’ll be a convention newsletter, designed to amuse, entertain and inform the membership on about six occasions over the weekend. This is a great way to get messages out to members who might not be following our social media feeds over the weekend.

How to get things into the newsletter:

(a) Pop into the newsletter room in Gather and find one of the people working on the newsletter.
(b) Send an email to and it should automatically forward to the newsletter team.

The shorter and funnier things are, the more likely they are to be printed unamended; if you need something to go out with exact wording, it’s best to come find us.

If you’re announcing something (eg awards) over the weekend, please let us have the results in advance; we respect embargoes.

Looking forward to a fantastic weekend!
