Hi everyone hope you are having a good week - and that those of you that have already broken up for the summer are having a relaxing time. Many of you have contacted me to say you want to take part in Write Path this year but if you haven't please let me know as soon as possible. We have many new authors writing for us this year and I'd like to take this chance to say hi and thanks in advance ;0) .

Now to the exciting news.............well as you know I had decided to have one day (7th October) as a poetry day as it is National Poetry Day and a friend and poet, Jacob Sam LaRose had already agreed to write the first stanza of a poem. When I opened my inbox today however I became rather excited, you see I met a poet at a conference I presented at recently and he agreed to write for us but to be honest I really didn't think he would remember.............but he did!!! and it's Benjamin Zephaniah!!!!! The stanza is great, classic Benjamin and I'm so thrilled that he wanted to help.

We still need many more authors and poets and I will be continuing to approach people but wow!! Will be in touch with more details soon just wanted to share the joy .
