This is what yesterday was all about -


Thursday was National Poetry day - so a great day to launch a collection of poetry. For those who don't know the BM was Writer in residence in a prison for 3 years - and is now doing the same job in another prison elsewhere. This book is the result.

Because I'd deliberately not read any of the poems so I could come to this event fresh like everyone else, I sat in the audience and listened to my husband read his work - and I'm proud to say it moved me to tears.

And then I went to a dinner with staff from the prison and heard the Head of Learning speak of the hugely valuable contribution and the impact his work there has made - and I was in tears again.

Happy, proud tears - but then I never doubted it for a minute.
