We’re All InThis Together.

Poetry From the West Midlands.

Tomorrow night, Friday the 19th October at 7:30 in the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Wolverhampton, I shall be helping to launch the latest book from Offa’s Press.

West Midlands finest.

We’re All In This Together is a fine collection of poetry from writers across the Midlands with an environmental theme. I have two rather lovely poems in the book, which I shall be reading and I’ll be joined by a host of writing talent from across the region. Speakers include Michael W Thomas, Emma  Purshouse, Marion Cockin, Iris Rhodes, Ramesh Gaat and Romalyn Ante.

As well as this aural treat we also have Linda  Nevill a printmaker. Linda has designed the cover and will be  exhibiting some of the other designs submitted for the cover in a pop-up  exhibition at the gallery.

There will be light refreshments and copies of the book to purchase. Get the weekend off to a great start and come down.

So here it is, the wonderful illustration to go with my tweet for today’s instalment of the 3hundredand65 graphic novel in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

3hundredand65 Graphic Novel from writers tweets

I stumbled across this recently and just thought wow, what a brilliant idea. David Kirkwood is a graphic designer who dreams of being an illustrator and came up with the idea for 3hundredand65 not only to fulfil that dream but to also raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Kirkwood has pledged that every day he will produce a drawing for the graphic novel and that a selected writer will then tweet the text for it. This way it will produce a huge amount of publicity for the project and ultimately raise funds for this worthy cause.
