Next year, my debut collection of poetry will be published by The Lonely Press in 2018. Poems will also be published in Eye-Flash, Strix and the Cardiff Review.

In 2017, I was Poet in Residence at Gorjys Secrets and Gwledd Feast Conwy and co-edited Cheval 10, the anthology published in association with the Terry Hetherington Prize. I copy edited The Tishman Review and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. My poem The Birthday Waltz led The Lonely Crowd’s online Dylan Thomas anniversary coverage.

Previously, I have held the Writer in Residence role at the Chester, Conwy and Montgomery Literature Festivals and was involved in the ‘Poem for October’ activities in the Dylan Thomas Boathouse.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My mom, a poet, used to give me Benadryl when I was a kid. She said it was for my hay fever, which I did suffer from, but I suspect it was sometimes administered so I’d get sleepy. Then she could write poetry in the ensuing quiet. Cheers!

Ah benadryl, the nectar of the peace seekers. We are considering weaning ours from milk to Strawberry calpol.

Voting for benylin, and not the new non drowsy one! The one with the warning not to operate machines after taking!

3 11 2012

First tooth today; all the Benylin in Boots couldn’t save us.

Have mercy.

Love the tag-line on the blog, sir. And happy to meet you – I share your sleeplessness, and for the same reasons.

25 09 2012

congratulations! It’s amazing how much you read when you’re desperately tired. I hope it gets easier on you!

It always sometimes does.

Shhhhh. Don’t wake the baby!

He sleeps and sleeps. Last night however…

These replies have awakened a craving for Benylin – the original drowsy do-not-operate-machines version 😀

You may already know that I have nominated you for a Liebster blog award; take a look:

Thank you for the visit! I returned the favor and quite enjoyed what I found,

29 12 2013

Thanks, I skipped past the word ‘quite’ and replaced it unconsciously with ‘really’. Your site is busy and interesting and comprehensive. Thanks again.

Wild Heart Scribe

Well quite and really are certainly interchangeable. Busy? Hmm…

Hi – just a quickie to say we did make it to North Wales this weekend, and had a walk around Conwy – went in the Dylan Thomas shed and had a nice chat with the woman there. Unfortunately we’re bobbin off early tomorrow, so won’t get chance to come to your event – but wishing you the very best, and hope to meet up on a future visit. Cheers!

16 08 2014

I intended to email you some of the found poetry we amassed in homage to yours, but ran out of signal and time. If I had thought you’d be this way (and were not just being polite) I’d have requested you master class the session we had in the bookshop basement. Did you see David Crystal in the evening?

Steve Mitchell

Hi there. Had quite a packed anniversary weekend, so we weren’t about in the evening. Hope everything went well. How did the session go?
We’re off away now for a couple of weeks – reading and very little else. Best wishes. Cheers, Steve

You’re welcome on both counts.

Ta for the comment, Glyn. Did you mean ‘Every Laugh is a Dice Throw’?

All the best,

Honored by your “like.” Thank you.

Honoured that you are following my blog, Glyn, thank you.

That’s a statement to make me smile over a pile of Sunday marking. Thanks and thanks
