Date: March 14, 2018

Time: 6:00-9:00 p.m. (Discussion starts at 7:00)

Place: new venue: Book House Cafe, Jinbocho


(See website for map; come out Jinbocho subway exit A1, turn right and walk about 15 meters to the Kitazawa Building. We will be on the ground floor at the back, beyond the children's books. Look for the SWET Sign.

RSVP: Space is limited; please let us know if you are coming. E-mail us at SWET Events

Fee: Free of charge; feel free to bring a bento or snack to eat during the first hour while we catch up on news and swap stories. The discussion will begin at 7:00.

We'll take a look at the results of the SWET Survey conducted in February and think about what kinds of events to plan for 2018--including future Talkshops--consider possible speakers, and list some issues about which participants have “burning questions” or ongoing interest.

For a taste of what fellow SWETers are writing, and their perspectives and styles, we will have readings from two or three recently received writings by SWET members and friends. (Counter Kabuki, stories by Jared Lubarsky; Good Night Papa, by Simon Rowe; and In Praise of Shadows, a new translation by Greg Starr).
