Snatches

The following images represent a selection of photographic work which should be looked at in conjunction with the poetry from Dave’s third book – Sawing Fallen Logs For Ladybird Houses, 2011.

“The original intention was to have the images and poetry side by side in one volume but due to the reluctance of any of the Welsh publishing houses to take the project any further I was forced to produce the book without images (due to high printing costs) and display the images online instead. Ah, well, so much for Welsh book publishers, grants & bursaries, guess they happen to other people.” – Dave Lewis


Note:
In 2011 Literature Wales (Academi) received 102 applications. They awarded 24 bursaries but just 5 were to unpublished writers.

Between 2004-2014, Literature Wales has awarded over £1 million in Writers’ Bursaries, supporting 272 writers, yet only 102 books have been published, which begs the question did the 170 ‘writers’ who failed to produce a book give the money back?
