I’m just back from five days studying form in poetry with Mimi Khalvati and Sean O’Brien at Arvon. We had a great time. Lots of learning about meter, rhyme and other poetic things. Plus ‘cooks and bottle-washers’ for one afternoon only. It was a pleasure to cook great local food, in the company of some talented poets, supported by the Arvon team. Now saving my pennies to do it again some day 🙂
Here are some of my photos of the glorious autumn colours around Totleigh Barton, Devon.

Lovely photies, thanks. AND I just bought both your books on ama for kindle – not that you ever mentioned that that was possible. Too modest, I say! (Incidentally: How do you get an author to put a dedication in an electronic book. Now there’s a rub, ey?) Anyway, I hope that the pennies for the books help towards a next Arvon course – anybody there will profit from your presence.

Aw, you are a charmer! Thank you.
Here’s how you put a dedication in an electronic book, at least, here are some FAQs about it at Authorgraph: http://www.authorgraph.com/books/new
Have you gone into print or e-book yet, Roland?
Thank you again.
