As my dummy books become more and more developed I still feel that there is something missing from my project. I decided I wanted to play around with text, both within my edit and at the beginning.
After speaking with my tutor he gave me the idea to email local poet Simon Armitage and ask if he could help by creating a short piece relating to my project. I looked on his website and found an email for his publisher and thought i’d give it a go. So I sent an email stating who I was and A link to my latest dummy. She responded quickly stating that he was very busy but would pass on my information to me. Unfortunately he didn’t have time to help me out, so I sent a similar email out to relevant students at the University and was shocked by the amount of responses I received!
I am hoping to collaborate with someone in the next few weeks and get the ball rolling!
