So today's one of my favourite days of the year - National Poetry Day! I love poetry and find it both soothing and uplifting. I've been running a poetry event on the Write Path ning today with poems started by fantastic poets/writers - Tony Walsh, Tommy Donbavand, Andy Robb, Dom Conlon, Stephen Williams and Matt Windle and I can't thank them enough for their generous contributions. Our participants are always amazing but I think this year has been the absolute best, a couple of the continuations even caused me to shed a tear. Do read them , the talent shown by our young poets will amaze and delight you I'm sure. I hope you've all had a great Poetry Day, here's a video from one of our contributors, Tony Walsh to end your day with a smile:
I attended another wonderful book launch for the Write Path books last Thursday at Pendle Vale School in Nelson, Lancs. The students were quite wonderful and I was very pleased to hear them talk about how much they enjoyed the Write Path. The local press were there along with representatives from local public library services, a borough literacy advisor and Head Teachers from feeder schools. The public library and primary schools were presented with a copy of the book which I thought was a lovely touch. The boys and girls made me feel so welcome and I was happy to sign their books for them when they asked - felt strange but good! Thanks to Mrs Vine their great librarian for inviting me.
