Some excellent stats here from Chris Hamilton-Emery on the Booktrade info page.
Meanwhile, back at the word-face, this week I have:
offered some new poetry books for review to various magazines
started - but not yet finished - a tongue-in-cheek 1000 word article on poem titles for Mimesis
written two more poems
emailed 10 finished poems across to the organisers for the Warwick Festival Photography and Poetry Exhibition that's planned for early October
enrolled at Warwick University for a BA in English & Cultural Studies
made final arrangements to read at the Atherstone Arts Festival on Saturday 27th September
continued reading Simon Barraclough's Los Alamos Mon Amour (which I'm reviewing for Under the Radar)
blogged up some Warwick Words Festival and Birmingham Books Festival events on my Warwick Poet Laureate blog
booked a restaurant for Friday night - my husband's 43rd birthday! - which will be our first meal out together in months
emailed all publishers with books under review in HR with a link to the reviews pages
begun commissioning articles and reviews for the second issue of Horizon Review
set myself to learn some deponent verb forms in Latin - OU examination coming up on October 8th!
printed out the first three chapters of my Young Adult fantasy novel, for some last minute revisions before it wings its way to a highly recommended literary agent next week
managed to slot in some new last-minute names to read at next month's Festival Poetry Cafe in Warwick
groaned over forgetting again to review Brendan Cleary's pamphlet for Write out Loud
got more than five hours' sleep on at least TWO occasions so far!
