Everybody’s got a blog!

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

I’ve just been adding a couple of links to the website of poet, theatre producer and journalist extraordinaire, Peter Mortimer, and I don’t know which of them best illustrates how widespread blogging has become: this description of Peter’s latest production in the blog of the Ambassador to the Republic of Lebanon, or the fact that Peter himself, a notorious luddite, is now blogging about the production’s progress

Admittedly, Peter’s play Croak the King & a Change in the Weather starring the children of Camp Shatila, is a pretty extraordinary production… (and now you don’t need me to explain why, you can read about it in the words of people who were there).

Celebrating International Women’s Day

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Diamond Twig press launched its Poem of the Month feature in September 2003, with Joanna Boulter’s astonishing, shocking, magnificent Still Life with Figs. I won’t claim that we’ve never missed a month since, but we haven’t missed many, and the archive is a store-cupboard full good things, (mostly) new poetry from (mostly) women writers, some better known than others, on topics from the first breath to Judgement Day and from fury to jelly sandals.

2011 marks the centenary of International Women’s Day, and Diamond Twig’s Ellen Phethean has celebrated by choosing not one but five new poems: read them on the Diamond Twig website.
