As you can see – this blog has changed. In an attempt to harness the colours of spring, and possibly mid brain-fart, it’s gone all pink and optimistic. Now that the fallow months are nearly over it’s time to take stock – to clean out. As Larkin put it, to “begin afresh, afresh, afresh”.
Lots of projects coming up in the next few months including: becoming a part-time worker with a publishing & research cooperative I’ve respected for years (VERY exciting); The Odyssey storytelling in April; meeting my new niece in May; story writing, drafting and editing (I must contact my lovely co-author); copy writing; directing my play; and MA poetry portfolio writing (gathering words for this particular project is like herding cats). A lot on!
Sadly, there will be no more Word on the Street. I will collate my notes and stories from this experience. I want the participants’ tales to be told, for other people to understand vulnerable adults’ points of view, their needs, their desires, their hopes for the future. I’ll be running more writing sessions soon with more of an environmental/natural angle, more on this once confirmed…
Hope all is well in blogging land, and that your respective lives and projects are going swimmingly?
