The second Crossword Masterclass will take place in London on Saturday 13 July 2013.

We’ll have the use of an easily accessible room on University College’s leafy main quadrangle off Gower Street, where lunch will be brought to us and there’ll exquisite coffee, fruit and other goodies available all day. I’m looking forward to a stimulating class, with a group of people representing a range of experience, from self-confessed dabblers to those who are starting to have their work published. I hope you’ll join us, and learn a lot about compiling from me and from each other.

There are also still a couple of places available on the Brighton masterclass, set for Saturday 8 June 2013, but act now if you’d like to spend a day by the sea!  Click here to see post about the earlier masterclass..

If you can’t get to either the London or Brighton class, I’ll set up more classes further afield, wherever I know there’s a group of aspiring setters who’d like to come to them. If that describes you, please let your friends know and put them in touch with me, so that I know where to look.
