Dear Todd,
A bit of additional sad news: Poets in North London and elsewhere have been mourning the deaths, within days of each other, of Phil Poole and John Rety. Phil was ill for a number of months and has written a wonderful collection of poems that will be published posthumously next week. Phil was a lovely man, a talented sculptor as well as a poet, with a delightful skewed sense of humour.
John died very suddenly of a heart attack. As you may know, he ran the Torriano Meeting House with his partner, Susan Johns, for 23 years, and also the publishing house, Hearing Eye. He had a huge, complex, extraordinary personality. His life was truly dedicated to peace and poetry, and I very much miss him.
All good wishes,
Leah
