Please do not send written pieces such as short stories or novel excerpts, as they will go unread.

Some FAQs:

  • I just joined but don't have access to the members' area yet: One of the organisers will need to manually enable your account. We get notifications for new sign-ups so someone will get to your activation request in due course. Make sure you're signed up on MeetUp, as that will speed up our cross-referencing, and if you haven't heard back within three days, shoot us a message.
  • When is the next critique meeting? Why are there none listed on Meet Up? During quieter periods of the year, we put out an open call for eligible members to send us stories for critique, and schedule critique meetings as and when we receive the next batch of stories. You will get an email notification from Meet Up when this happens, so keep an eye out.
  • I have a story I could submit, but I haven't been to two critique meetings yet. Then you'll need to wait until you have; we will not be making exceptions to this rule.
  • Will you be resuming your in-person meetings now that pubs are reopening in London/people are getting vaccinated? There are no plans to take Spectrum offline at this stage. We will revisit this as the vaccination programme is rolled out more widely, but even then we expect to operate a hybrid model.
