Hi – and welcome – great to see you here – you’ll find an eclectic mix of first and subsequent drafts of my work in this blog. I like to receive your feedback as my poetry and prose move towards the published (or not!) versions. My sincere thanks to all who ‘like’ and share their views about my posts.
If you are a writer and are interested in meeting others try out the events organised by the Worcestershire LitFest & Fringe. The SpeakEasy evenings are well worth a visit, they take place at Cafe Bliss, Worcester Arts Workshop in Worcester on the second Thursday of each month, from page to stage: performance poetry and prose. For those with darker (or ‘alternative genre’) preferences, try 42 Worcester nights, they run on the last Wednesday of the month, this Worcester gothic / horror / sci fi / fantasy group is often fascinatingly ghoulish, you’re sure of a good evening.
If you want to develop your writing, the friendly and well-established Worcestershire Writers’ Circle meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month.
