The April Fringe meeting was an open mic event at which anyone was welcome to come along and read, for just five minutes each. In the first batch of readers were:
- Pete Sutton - who managed 5 stories in his 5 minutes ("Overdue Book", "Werewolves are Hairy", "Rumbled", "Zoophilia" and "The Memory of Light")
- Dan Pawley - "Worlds Together" (published in Jupiter #41)
- Joanne Hall - extract from "Arrested Development" (unpublished)
- Philip Purser-Hallard - trailer for The Locksley Exploit
The MC is Cheryl Morgan, and the ticking strawberry of doom was provided by Heather.
