Matt Harvey ~ Poet ~ Latest Book

Hi all, 
I bumped into Matt Harvey today and said 'Hello'.

He's launching a new book in collaboration with artist Claudia Schmid. 

His poems are inspired by the illustrations, so why not pop along to his website and get your copy.

On a personal note, I'm off to the optician's again because of my scotopic-like symptoms, which significantly reduce my ability to use bright computer/ tablet/ android screens for any period of time. 

It's another reason for my not being on Blogger much these days. So, I do hope, this time, they can sort me out.

In the meantime I hope everyone is still busy writing successfully?  


  1. Sorry you're not able to look at a screen for long. Hope they find an answer for you.
    Funny cover for Sit.

    1. Bless you, thanks Alex. Yes indeed, it is a quirky and easily relatable illustration.

  2. Hi Madeleine - such a nuisance your eye 'thingie' ... I too hope they sort it out - good luck. Love that book and the thought process in it ... illustration et al ... so clever ..

    Cheers and all the best - Hilary

    1. Thank you Hilary, indeed it is, affects everything I do. Tomorrow hopefully, I'll get some better spectacles to help or something.
      Yes the illustration is fun.I'm reading Monthy Don's Nigel, my family and Other dogs and this image reminds me of it.

  3. I hope all goes well at the opticians.

    1. Thanks Patsy, me too. It's pain in every sense of the word! ;O) x

  4. What a fun cover!

    Hope the visit to the eye doctor goes well and they can help you feel better. :)

    1. Bless you, thanks. I hope so too. Awiating my new specs as we speak. x
