My quest for public funding for Leafe has not started well. Two emails to the local Arts Council representative have gone unanswered. Time for Plan B, when I think of it. Perhaps a phone call?
I had to tell John Lucas that I couldn't get involved in organising the Flying Goose readings with himself and another Nottingham-based publisher. I just can't fit anything else into my life (without seriously neglecting my family and job). But John has said he'll continue to put the readings on, probably in conjunction with Nottingham's Five Leaves Publications. The readings will be revived with a new series starting this autumn.
