The Mechanics’ Institute Review – the climate issue

What a lovely long sunny summer it’s been! I spent some time in Northern Spain which was great. I chose to travel by sea rather than air and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Now autumn is definitely in the atmosphere and I’m returning to my blog, writing classes and other related writing activities feeling refreshed. I’ve continued writing poetry over the summer but have taken some breaks from my computer.

I had a great time at the Mechanics’ institute Review 16 party in London a few days ago. I’m thrilled to have my poem ‘Swans on the Vltava River’ in this climate issue. There are some wonderful stories and poems in the review and I feel in good company. I met fiction writer Elizabeth Baines at the launch party – her story, ‘Dreaming Possibility’, with a visionary protagonist – is a must-read.  The cover of the book and the artwork inside brilliantly complement all the writing. It is a thought-provoking and inspiring collection and, of course, completely topical with its focus on weather, climate and the future. I have another climate/weather poem to be published shortly in the Live Canon anthology – more news about that later.

Hasta luego!
