Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 13, Season XVIII. The annual break is drawing near, and we will finish off the season with a celebration of everything we’ve achieved during our companionable labours over the last many months.

Season XVIII – Alphaday 6

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 6, Season XVIII. By the time we’ve moved on to year 2022 and you’ve completed all the tasks set for next Alphaday we’ll be halfway through this season, our 18th.

Season XVIII – Alphaday 1

Hi Alphas, Welcome to Alphaday 1, season XVIII. It’s great to start a new season, and we must be doing something right to have reached our 18th season and still be going strong – or rather going from strength to strength. We’re a group of keen and brilliant writers, and we pool our ideas together…
