What do I Know  ... about Writing

by Alana Beth Davies


A beginner’s guide to writing fiction.
This is not an instruction manual. I don’t pretend to know it all, and I’m not claiming that this is all a writer needs to know. Far from it! I won’t tell you what to do – but I can tell what I’ve learned, what I do, and what works for me. I can tell you how I write, why I write, and I can share some useful tips I’ve had from others. Use them or not – that’s up to you.

Upon the death of his cousin David W. Beardmore, the author acquired over 5,000 colour slides that he had taken, mainly of transport, during the 1970s and 1980s. This small publication represents a small sample of this body of work. A short biography of David’s family has been included. David volunteered with the Severn Valley Heritage Railway at its Hampton Loade station. Mike Everley was born in 1949 in the mining district of South Wales. He studied as a mature student at Coleg Harlech, Aberystwyth University and the University of Leeds. Before retirement, was a member of both the Society of Authors and the National Union of Journalists.

The Art of C.S.C. Everley

by Mike Everley

Sadly, Cherrill passed away on the 17th August 2016 after a short illness. She was only 67. She worked in a wide variety of styles, ranging from traditional life studies to modern and post modern abstracts. Although she often adopted realism in order to produce landscapes, portraits and life studies, her more recent work tended toward abstracts and semi abstract work, with the beauty of the local area influencing much of her painting. Cherrill lived and worked in the Swansea area all of her life and many of her paintings reflect the city's rich industrial past. She was also very interested in finding positive and negative shapes in the natural elements and depicting them in an abstract style.

A Baby Shower Book

by The Family

This is a little book written for Hannah as she was not able to have a baby shower due to Covid restrictions.

What we did  …

Sisters, mother, aunts and grandmother all chipped in to this little book. Our contributions vary in length, as well as the number and quality of pictures, but we all wanted to do something to help celebrate Hannah's up-coming labour and birth, and let her know they were thinking about her. It’s written as a series of messages to Hannah, although of course it’s for Gareth too. This book is not for sale as it contains such personal experiences which not all contributors wish to share with the wider world. But it is an example of what can be done.
