England Remembered Blog

The englandremembered.blog offers the opportunity to share current research during the completion of the solider poets’ biographies for the England Remembered Book and to introduce our modern day writers and poets.  This is very much a collaborative project and I hope to include posts by our contributors over the next 12 months as well as interviews and excerpts of their work. 

Follow us as we near completion of the England Remembered Book in preparation for a website and crowdfunding launch in late Spring/Summer 2019. 

This non-profit charity book provides donations for H4H (Help for Heroes) and will be available to purchase in the Autumn of 2019.  Supported by the University of Portsmouth, the National Trust and West Dean Gardens.
