Then there was Dru Marland's launch of her latest collection, Drawn Chorus, published by Gert Macky, which took place last Monday and which was A Roaring Success.
Here are the guest poets!
Today it was off to Wells Festival of Literature for a bit of a change. I'd been asked to get the reception for this year's shortlisted poets in the poetry competition under way by reading my poem 'Mr Cowper's Hares', which won last year's Hilly Cansdale prize for local poets. And since it's always a pleasure to go to Wells, I was happy to oblige.
And it all went ever so well.
Here are a few of the City of Wells in Autumn photos such an occasion demands.
The view from the pub
Stained glass autumn ash with Cathedral backdrop
The ruined Great Hall of the Bishop's Palace
Stained glass from ruined French churches, post Revolution
Not falling into the mediaeval conduit on the way back to the car
