Wednesday discussion meetings (see below for topics) are held at 8pm in Jesus College in Seminar Room B.
Wednesday video meetings (see below for programme) start at 8pm in New College, Lecture Room 4 (Noel Salter Room on Staircase 4). To get to New College, walk down Broad Street away from town. When you get to the end, keep on going straight ahead down Holywell Street. The College main entrance is on the right hand side. Go through and turn right. Staircase 4 is the 4th staircase from the entrance (it sticks out from the rest of the building and has a big spiral staircase). Enter the staircase and go through the door on the right, and the Lecture Room 4 is just through there on the left.
|22 Jan||Wednesday||1st Week||Discussion||Tim: Collective Plotting - working within the constraints of a few required plot elements can we come up with ideas and plot for a book or film? Previous stories have involved teleporting Swiss plane crash victims (or are they?) and biotech (somehow involving the Great God Cthulhu and a naked cloned murderer played by SM Gellar). This time we will explore the rich field of alien contact.|
