Poets of the First World War

If you haven’t yet discovered Connie Ruzich’s weblog Behind their Lines, now is your chance!  Connie has a very different approach to the poets and poetry of the First World War, but I think we complement each other and Connie's posts are always very interesting indeed.   Here is the link to Connie’s weblog

As you are probably aware, my project is an exhibition project and exhibitions are aimed at members of the general public.   The weblogs and Facebook pages are a spin-off which we decided to set up when we realised I was collecting a great deal of information.

Exhibition panels are sent by e-mail free of charge to anyone wishing to host an exhibition. Full list of panels available to date can be sent on request.
Exhibition at Blackpool Library, UK, 2014
