It has been a busy time for the nation, what with the Coronation et al. Walton Wordsmiths have certainly not been idle. At our last meeting, where Ann kindly took the minutes, Howard read a highly amusing piece concerning the idiosyncracies of the guide on his visit to Turner’s Cottage at Twickenham. There was a discussion of the potentially damaging effects on literature of AI. Trudy read out a brief but very reflective and moving passage on a recent sojourn at a Buddhist retreat; Guy a potted history of the British monarchy, with apologies to Seller and Yeatman’s 1066 And All That.

 Trudy is finalising the graphics for her latest novel The Asymmetric Man. Jess, our youngest member and a highly talented artist/writer, is considering a contract she has been offered by a publisher for her latest book. I am beavering away with my own writing, and recently published an autobiography, Blyth Spirit, available on Amazon.

 We are in discussion with the organisers of the Weybridge Festival (17th-24th June) re having some of our manuscripts read out, and maybe selections from our work performed as plays, during the event though at the time of writing it is early days.

I am an artist/writer self published with two novels, working on the third. My material in writing is perhaps disconnected from local settings being derived from a period of my life which I spent in North Africa. Writing can be a lonely occupation so I would love to have company and celebrate the work of fellow authors. I would like to join this group.
