Apologies, for I'm still not fully back in the physical and mental loop. But for now, please can I draw your attention to some of the following?
1) Recommendations from this month's 26 newsletter can be found here.
2) As mentioned in the newsletter, The Art of Lost Words is on at text/gallery in London. I quote:
Ever wondered what happens to lost words, forgotten in language's landfill while the world sweeps on in pursuit of new phrases? Well, for one week only, they'll be exhumed and transformed into objects of beauty by a handpicked crew of 41 designers, artists and illustrators.
I quote again: "As a member of 26, you're cordially invited to the Private View on 6 March 2009, 6pm - 9pm at The German Gym, Pancras Road, NW1 2TB (opposite St Pancras Int'l). Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to pop along. Otherwise, catch the show which runs from 5 -9 March." I'm sure you the non-26ers amongst you will be welcome too.
3) It's soon going to be Free The Word time again, International PEN's literary festival. At 26, we're doing to do a slightly more souped up version of last year's Free The Blog. If you'd like to be involved, please drop me a line.
