I would like to thank Gus Fowler Wright - Sydney Fowler Wright's grandson for his help and guidance regarding his Grandfather.
Sydney Fowler Wright was himself a very accomplished poet. He founded the Empire Poetry League and encouraged others to write poetry, travelling around gathering poems and then publishing them.
I first discovered Sydney when I was looking for Merseyside poets. The Birkenhead Reference Library have a copy of his "Merseyside Poets" book and allowed me to look at it - for which I am extremely grateful. The legacy of Sydney Fowler Wright is very precious and I do not think he receives sufficient acclaim.
I cannot do justice at the moment to the amazing achievements of Sydney Fowler Wright because I am preparing for the exhibition at the Ace Centre in Nelson, Lancashire which starts on 15th August 2013 but I will definitely come back to him as soon as possible.
However, in the meantime, do look at the website http://www.sfw.org/about.shtml which will give you lots more information.
Thank you very much Gus.
