Hard Times

In these days of austerity, the arts are prime targets for cuts - and people who work a 'day job' to fund their own artistic endeavours, like everyone else, can have a hard time of it. Crowd-funding is a novel way of addressing some of the pressures, and poet Adam Horovitz is currently asking those who have enjoyed his work, and supporters of poetry more generally, to give a little so that he can take up a prestigious Hawthorden Fellowship later this year. You can find more details here.

It needn't cost you the earth to help Adam out. In fact, you can sponsor him for as little as £1. He's already raised over £100 of the £800 he needs, and it would be great to see him achieve his target. Please give something if you can.
