Three Drops from a Cauldron press- find them at:- https://threedropspoetry.co.uk/ is including one of my pieces in their upcoming ghosts anthology entitled ‘White Noise & Ouija Boards’ due out in the Autumn;
and Gill James of Chapel Town Books is publishing her anthology of drabbles off her Cafelit website :- The Best of CaféLit 6 and I have a piece included.
Come September I hope to run and teach my own- drumroll- Creative Writing classes- one in Saltaire at The Craft House; here’s the link:-
The initial idea is to run 4 interlocked workshops – for beginners onwards who would like to have fun, get their ideas out there and maybe even submit their work if they would like to. I will share my own writing experiences, the highs and the lows of rejection, the pain and perseverance of rewriting and how to enjoy word making.
The Craft House, run by April, has a lovely basement room, light and airy, in which to get inspired.
I am also talking to Sunny Bank Mills Gallery in Farsley near Pudsey, which is an amazing space – with a view to running workshops there in the autumn.
So if you know anyone who might be interested in the Saltaire course please pass on the info. Thank you.
A writing friend of mine from Otley WEA class, Ruth Middleton, has an interview in the Mirror today online; here’s the link-http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/tennis-fan-develops-face-blindness-1087247
Ruth is in a wheelchair after a life changing road accident in 2000, and a leg amputation last year; she talks about dealing with ‘face blindness’ and other problems.
She is an amazing, warm, witty, fascinating woman with buckets of determination who I love dearly and have been honoured to know over the last few years. Please read her story. It is inspiring.
