April Arts

No April showers but a quiet month to reflect and renew. Started with an Audio Anthology launch with a poem from me and many authors of SBPOC Writers Network on Sunday 3rd of April.

I met a few of my friends I had not seen for a couple of years since Covid changed our lives. This month has been filled with lots of work with the Kavya Prize and the various committees I am serving on. All enjoyable and worth the effort to see it becoming a reality.

I do hope lots of people who have been crying out for ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ in the Scottish literary world will buy tickets and be there in person, to congratulate the winner of the first Kavya Prize at Aye Write. Tickets are just £6.60 each. 21st May at 8 pm.


Great to see Milngavie Week is back on after a hiatus of two years. The meeting of the committee was really upbeat. The Logo is here and the events are all being planned. An author event in Milngavie Library and a Flash Fiction competition for secondary pupils on the theme of ‘Jubilee Day’ will be on. Young writers are like a fresh breeze in the writing world.

My annual scourge of hay fever is back again. Still annoying and makes some days miserable when there are so many booms to admire and the warm weather tempts one to be outside all the time. Well, life is never a bed of roses is it?
