Back in April Mo and I attended Peaky 2013, the freeform writing weekend. We both had a blast, and you can read all about it here.
Without going over too much old ground, Peaky is a weekend for writing and running freeforms (a bit like our murder mystery games, but they often don’t have a murder) in a friendly environment which encourages experimentation and lots of fun. It’s a great way to try writing a freeform if you’ve never done it before.
Anyway, we’re doing it all next year. Mo and I have already signed up – and now you can too!
The Peaky Games committee have just announced that sign ups have started for Peaky 2014 are open for everyone. (If you’re a member of Peaky Games sign ups opened a month earlier.)
Peaky 2014 will be held on 25-27 April 2014 at Upper Rectory Farm Cottages, which is not far from Tamworth and the top of the M42.
Cost for the weekend is £120 per person if you are prepared to share a twin/double, £80 pp if you are prepared to share with three others in the Quad (if available), and £200 pp if you want a room all to yourself (again, if available).
The price includes accommodation for three nights (Friday to Sunday – although many people leave on Sunday evening) and all meals apart from Sunday evening (which is usually a takeaway). Bring your own alcohol and something to write with (a laptop is best).
All you have to do to book is send £50 to Peaky Games (if you want to pay by Paypal you have to pay slightly more to cover Paypal’s processing fee). The details are on their website. (I’d also strongly recommend signing up for the mailing list.)
Bookings for Peaky close on 31 January 2014.
