Farringdon Road on a hot Tuesday evening, at the Free Word Centre, was an unexpected delight. A group of singularly insightful individuals, broadcasters, writers, publishers offering us, the audience , access to their experience. And in the melee later I met the most interesting Steve Wasserman who runs the blog Read Me Something You love. This is a blog like no other, to quote ”
Read Me Something You Love is an online podcasting project. But it is also, hopefully, an offline experience.
People who love the written word read me a short story, an excerpt from a novel, or poem that excites them in some way, and then we wholeheartedly discuss the piece in question.”
How cool is that – but don’t take my word for it – go visit RMSYL
An example, quite apposite since I have recently returned from (been reborn from) a week’s residential tutoring by the delightful Mr Haddon.
