Well I certainly hope so having started a brand new project called ‘Beyond the Sword’. I’m meeting with a group of teenagers at Preston Hall Museum on alternate Saturdays and if the first session, (held last Saturday), is anything to go by, I think there will be some excellent writing generated as part of this project. This is a very caring, very energetic group. 🙂 The young people will also be working with a blacksmith to create a new sculpture inspired by the text and this will be put on display in the armoury section of the museum, and I’m hoping to persuade some of them to be guest writers on this site, so watch this space.
In the meantime here are some group thoughts they’ve had by concentrating on the sword and what is beyond the sword.
Beyond the Sword
On a personal note, I must keep believing in the idea of just how mighty the pen is, given that I hope to finish my fifth collection of poems this year. It will be my interpretation of Horace Odes Book I which, strangely enough, I’ve relocated into the world of writing. I hope this collection will be mighty in its own right. 😉
