Megan Garrett-Jones has asked for an experienced cruciverbalist, which I would say everyone here could be counted as, to make a presentation in Sydney on cryptics.
In her own words:
I am urgently looking for a Sydney-based ‘expert’ (self-confessed of otherwise) to lead a short presentation on cryptic crossword solving at the Surry Hills Library this Thursday (1st March). Format is open – can be the practical basics, or about their personal passion.
It is for the final installation in a series called ‘Your Better Life’, organised by a group of artists called ‘Bake Sale’ in associated with the City of Sydney and the Surry Hills Library’s ‘Late Night at the Library’ program. Past events have been courses on LOVE, CULTURE, ENTERTAINING, and this one will be SMARTS. It is a 20 minute presentation at 9pm preceding a demonstration from some dapper fashion aficionados. The remuneration is $200 and an extreme amount of gratitude for the presenter’s time and wisdom.
Anyone interested should contact Megan megan.garrett.jones[at]gmail.com
If you’re willing to join in on what looks to be a lot of fun, contact her directly.
