One thought on “Writing”

  1. Emma, hope you had a safe and restful journey home today. Thank you for making our day at the Lit & Phil on Monday night. You talked briefly at the pub about working with artists, with a view to adding creative text of some sort. I thought you might just be interested in seeing my first proper effort along the same lines. One of the members of my little poetry group is also President of the Sunderland Photographic Society and has also won prizes for his photos. He brought in some of his photos to stir our creative juices. I picked up my first effort this morning from the framers. I would like to send it to you for your comment – his photo and my poem. But I don’t know where i could send it so that you get it and it arrives in one piece. Have you got an ‘official’ email address i could use? Best wishes, Charles GARDINER.
