Meet the Crew!

If you've read our 'about' page you know a bit about the group, but what about the members? Here's the lowdown on the friendly faces you can expect to find at our meetings:

Her works have appeared in 'The Wolf' (University of Wolverhampton Magazine), the anthology 'We’re All In This Together' (Offa’s Press), 'The Cannon’s Mouth' Issue 47, 'Ink, Sweat and Tears', and 'Blakenhall Words' anthology. She has also performed her poetry at Wolverhampton ‘City Voices’ and Stafford Arts Festival 2013.

Desmond Cox is a mature student from Wolverhampton who likes reading horror stories (vampires & monsters) and making up jokes. He's currently reworking some of his old poetry to reinvigorate it with new bold ideas in the hope of submitting some for publication. His writing has appeared in 'Blakenhall Words' anthology.

He has been attending Blakenhall Writers Group for many years, and his work has appeared in 'Blakenhall Words' anthology. He also attends Wolverhampton 'City Voices' regularly. When he's not watching or reading mysteries, you'll find Michael tinkering with electrics as he likes to upcycle cables and TV components.
