Here I am, compering a 3 book launch night at the Poetry Cafe, Covent Garden. My part in the books’ creation was as typeset, production and publishing – everything but the words. This rather excellent evening concluded with fine pale ale in a proper old “nuclear sub”.
It’s the short film that keeps on giving: Nuisance won Silver at Eurofilmer Kurzfilm, Hamburg on 10th May. Thanks be to Dave Watterson for submitting it. “Sign here” said the postie gruffly at the awards ceremony in my pyjamas this morning.
A taste of our 3 and a bit weeks from Vatersay to Butt of Lewis, April to May 2019. Order is a bit random. We found a stuffed corncrake in Stornoway, a bottle of Corncrake Ale on Barra and met someone who had heard a bloody corncrake at Balnranald just the day before. So, after 2,500 miles can we call that a result?

Bonkers? Yep, this one is right up there. But this latest from our diminutive Telegraph Pole Films just won 5 stars and the Sponsors’ Prize at BIAFF 2019. You can watch it right here right now, or go and see it at the BIAFF Festival in the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham on Sun 28th April. It’s only 15 mins of your life you’ll not get back.
Proud to be the publisher behind this beautiful and deeply moving new collection of poetry from David Van-Cauter. In stock now at www.arenig.co.uk £5.99 + P&P.

They don’t make road signs like this any more. This on the lane near Hafod Estate, Devil’s Bridge, Ceredigion.
We spend an inordinate amount of time watching the birds on our garden feeder: the characters, the pecking-order, the antics. No fewer than 5 jays regularly visit for a fill up on the fat-balls. Stunning, underrated birds…
That’s dry January buggered then. #guinnesscrisps
