South West Writers etc

Good day yesterday – South West Writer’s networking event in Taunton, organised by David Woolley: Ann Gray talking about bereavement and her insights into working with people with dementia, Clive Hopwood of the Writers in Prison Network on writing in prisons, and me and Phil Bowen on writing in schools.

Brilliant week at Totleigh Barton, the week before last, tutoring a course with Julia Bell. Since then I’ve been in schools every day, and will be until the end of term.

Dealines are approaching for the Foyle Young Poets Awards and the John Betjeman Poetry Competition, two of the best opportunities for young writers.
