It’s been another busy couple of months since I last posted anything here, and I have decided to make it a resolution for 2014 to update this news section more regularly.
Just to touch on a few of the things I’ve been up to recently: I took part in a writer’s residency at First Impression in Portugal, presented a seminar discussion (with my great friend Emma Claire Sweeney) at the annual NAWE conference, and read from my Tangled Roots memoir at a Literary Club event at NYU in London, alongside club members and the talented poet Todd Swift.
But my main news is the launch of www.somethingrhymed.com, a new website I’ve set up with regular collaborator Emma Claire. It’s about the literary friendships of famous writers, a subject the two of us have written about before in The Times and Mslexia.
Each month on Something Rhymed, we’ll be profiling a different pair of writer pals and challenging ourselves to complete an activity based on a prominent feature of their relationship.
We’ll be posting regular updates on our progress, and we’d love for as many people as possible to get involved by letting us know of any literary friends we could profile.
Or you might like to make it your New Year’s resolution to complete the activities alongside us. You can find out about the first challenge here.
Wishing you all the very best for 2014.
