Will Vigar

poet. writer. imposter.

News, apologies, excitement (slight return)

44bfbe257bbebe0405ccff3646e0831e--phd-student-doctoral-student-humorIf I’ve seemed a bit quiet of late, there are a number of good reasons.

Firstly, I’ve been chasing up a PhD for myself and after several months, I’ve got myself at place at Portsmouth University where my proposal, entitled ‘The Poetry of Nowhere’ was rapturously received. To my eternal surprise. I start in October. I’ve also learned that four of my poems have been selected for publication – more of those nearer the time – and a book I wrote last year is 95% certain of being published next year. I like to give myself a percentage leeway as I’m never convinced things like that are real until I hold them finished product in my hand.

Secondly, I also went to my very first poetry related event – The Motley Muse – in Huddersfield. More about that here, but those of you who know me will understand what a colossal achievement that was for me.

Thirdly, I had an accident just before Christmas and buggered my knee up. I have been spending a lot of time with a physiotherapist which has been utterly exhausting. Ongoing, but it’s getting better.

Fourthly, I’ve been working hard on a screenplay… although a lot of this work has occurred at a coffee shop, I have foregone the black turtleneck. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, though. For the love of god, pray for me 😦

So, anyway… busy busy busy.

But irregular service will be resumed…

(if you’re experiencing a sense of deja vu, most of this appeared on my other blog a few days ago)
