Launch of May Sinclair Society

News has just come in from Rebecca Bowler of Sheffield that the May Sinclair Society will be launched on 31st July 2013 so I hope to bring you further information once that is up and running.

Thank you to Gillian Clarke the Welsh poet, writer, playwright, broadcaster, translator for her kind reply to my enquiry about poets who wrote in Welsh.

Grateful thanks too to Beverly McKiernan of the Ace Centre in Nelson - where the next Exhibition of Female Poets of the First World War is to be held in August 2013.

I have been looking for poems written about Female Aviators and Munition Workers for the exhibition and finding some very interesting facts along the way.

Another thank you - this time to Gus Fowler Wright.  I will try to do justice to your very kind help Gus in another post.    Gus is the grandson of S. Fowler Wright who went round the British Isles finding poetry and publishing volumes such as The Merseyside Poets of 1923.   Mr Fowler Wright did a great deal of work in that field and he was himself a very accomplished poet and author.
