The thirty-ninth writer on the blog is James Turner

James Turner is a poet and performer (of his poems) from Exeter. He spent most of his working life as an unqualified library assistant. He much prefers retirement. His poetry collection, “Forgeries” was published in 2002. His favourite writers are J. Krishnamurti, Dostoyevsky and Phillip Larkin. His writing is influenced by a concern for the future of life on Planet Earth, as well as being about himself. He is an original Resident Writer, who is currently collaborating on a collection of poems “April is the Cruelest Month, from the Bad Fish to Another Thing About Poetry”, the result of a challenge the Residents accepted, to write thirty poems in thirty days. In the short time I have known him, he has become both a mentor and a friend and therefore I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.

James will be writing on the blog from 4th to 10th of June.

A big thank you to Brian for his wonderful posts.  Looking forward to see how your extension to the story “Batman and Catwoman” takes shape.

A few weeks ago, I asked you to keep an eye on the writers on the blog, especially those from the last few weeks.  Have you found the connection amongst them yet ?
