Mail 28 maart 2014: “My thinking on Flex was this: I see so many writers gain confidence in the group and start writing some really great pieces. However, they might not progress as far as wanting to approach publishers or send out to literary journals or whatever. So my meaning with ‘soft publishing’ is to get them started on that road – put your work up somewhere so at least you can send the links to friends, family, colleagues… which will hopefully go out beyond that is well to readers you don’t know. And if enough people start tuning in, if there’s enough of interest there then sure, it would be great to occasionally invite publishers or agents to read the works as well.

So right now, Stage One is basically a showcase of work of some people who’ve been through the workshop. Stage Two might also involve a separate section where writers who write in Amsterdam (who have not necessarily been through the workshop), can also post work. Maybe. Still need to think about that – but a New York friend suggested for the site to really gain traction, it will probably have to invite engagement more than it does in this Stage One. I thought it was a valid point.

Would love to be blogged about on your phab site. Let me think about what timing might work – might be better in say May, once we have all the key cast and people attached, to drum up a bit of excitement that this film is about to be shot. Will def. keep you posted on that subject!”

Royal Wedding: Cheers and Protests  0

Beatrix, by Ton LempersEven though we aim to show how Amsterdam is being shaped by its people, the Queen wasn’t the first person that came to mind. For one thing, she doesn’t live in the capital of ‘her’ country, by which alone she doesn’t qualify. However, she has influenced our city1 in a way we can’t ignore. Read more
