Science-Art and Tech Poetry

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Rejections, Nice Rejections and Acceptance

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

I read Weaveworld when I was thirteen/fourteen – it was a struggle and it was […]

Learning Experience

Monday, November 26th, 2012

So yesterday I did the village craft fayre all profits were for charity and yet it was the worst one I have ever done. It was slow – all of them are being slow at the moment but something else was going on, people were still buying the odd bit from the other stalls. Now […]

A Welsh Poet In Japan

Friday, March 16th, 2012

I don’t normally do more than one blog post a week on here but I felt that this was something that deserved the extra effort and push. Mab Jones who I first saw at the 2010 Wychwood Festival, is currently in Japan sharing welsh culture in the form of poetry. She is being funded for […]
