Although I haven't been writing on this blog I have been doing plenty of writing since last summer. This includes a treasure filled week in North Wales in March with Jan Fortune and Pete Marshall on one of the Cinnamon Press regular writing weeks
The project which has been preoccupying me for most of this year is a sequence of poems based on my grandfather's experience on the Malta convoys and that of my mother growing up in Wales at the same time. It has taken on a life of its own and some of the poems seem almost to have written themselves.
