Next time, can we have red M&M's and Perrier water?

Thanks to the marvellous Queens Park Book Festival for looking after us in the hospitality tent on Sunday before and after our turns in the Qwerty tent. Mary Bracht has pictures and a report on her website.

Queens Park books festival gig

The Willesden Green Writers' Group neverending world tour reaches Queens Park when we open the final day of the Queens Park Book Festival. Come and see us in the Qwerty tent. We have Mary Bracht, we have Tim Craven, we have me. What would you like to hear me read? Will there be children with angel wings and painted faces, will there be winos, will there be people in tweed jackets and sensible shoes?

Programme, ticket prices etc: Queens Park Book Festival. Our bit starts at 12 p.m. on Sunday in the Qwerty tent.

The smell of Yoga

Once again the condemned library centre was jumping, with the voting ballot station in the education room, kids swarming all over the library, a big meeting in space 1. We had to take the place left by the Yoga class. How to describe it? It's not wintergreen, more like soggy cardboard. A couple of newbies thought we were very hard on a tyro short story but we were really just trying to be helpful and constructive. Another amusing excerpt from future bestselling novel in progress, then to the pub. Somebody said poetry was for girls, to which somebody else quoted Catullus 16. There was no shortage of wine.
