Despite the last minute rescheduling from the original date a week prior, this meeting was pleasingly well attended, with some 30-odd in the audience. Dave Hutchinson spoke openly of his experiences as a writer and recovering editor, including how he came to have his first short story collection published at the age of eighteen. A journalist of some twenty-five years standing, Dave also had some interesting opinions on the recent phone-hacking scandal and the state of journalism today. This sparked a discussion involving the audience which could have gone on long into the night had time allowed. Our thanks to everyone who came along.
