Christmas Publication

Such an honour to feature on the cover of Give’s Christmas publication. In my book (pardon the pun!), it’s a very worthy cause which I love supporting. If you haven’t see their work, you can visit their website here.


Community Spirit Combatting the Challenges of COVID 19

Nice to feature in Pomfretian again, spreading the word of my daily poems as well as my general musings on the growing community spirit due to COVID 19. It’s always a delight to write for Pomfretian, which available online and in print, is such a diverse magazine covering all sorts; from recipes, to gardening, to what’s on articles and so much more. Have a look here if you want to see November’s edition. I for one think it makes a great read.

Staying Local For A While

It was an honour to be able to write for Pomfretian, the local community magazine. Read what I had to say on my new home town! Luckily for those who don’t live locally, Pomfretian publish all of their material online here.

Coronavirus: Changing Communication Forever?

In these unprecedented times, it seems so many of us are turning to the written word to keep abreast of latest developments and desperately seeking a ray or two of optimism. Be it newspapers, online articles, blogs or social media, there are so many forms of media readily available at our fingers tips, so thank goodness reading is one of the few pleasures that we CAN still enjoy in a socially distant way! But in these times, where only essential journeys are allowed, popping to the local newsagent to pick up a paper no longer seems like an essential journey.  Sadly, as the article below suggests, it may mark a change in times forever for the way we access journalism. Seems rather sad to me, especially given in any national or international crisis that’s gone before, newspapers have always been an integral way to keep everyone updated.
