Mike and Polly—Worcestershire Remembers WWI

Mike Alma and Polly Stretton

Mike and Polly had a stall at the ‘Worcestershire Remembers WWI’ exhibition at The Guildhall in Worcester 4 August 2018. Mike took along copies of ‘Voices of 1919’ and ‘Fragments of the Great War–My Family at War’ and Polly copies of the three anthologies compiled to celebrate the 100 years since the Great War.

The exhibition was well-attended and it was good to see so many visitors interested in and talking about the poetry and prose on display.

Mark Billen does it again!

Wonderful to learn that Mark’s play ‘Cinderella’s Sisters…happy ever after?’ will be performed in California later this year. Well done, Mark. Good news about Mark’s little furry friends, the two bears, too! Here’s what Mark said:

David Bassett, a wildlife writer from Hampshire is currently in the process of collating flash fiction pieces that when together, will form an anthology based on wildlife issues entitled ‘Wild Voices’. When completed, all proceeds of this anthology will be donated to wildlife charities in order to raise money for threatened species, their protectors and the fight against the extinction.

Kevin’s Accolade

Congratulations to Writers’ Circle member and author Kevin Brooke who is recognised as an inspiration to others in the local press (we already know he’s an inspiration!) He does wonderful work with young writers and has encouraged many to express their creativity and enter competitions such as the Rotary Young Writer Competition. The Rotary Club of Pershore were delighted with the entries they received following Kevin’s input.

The same article appeared in many local papers, but, in case you missed it, to see what Hereford Times, Worcester News and the Daily Echo reported click here.
