    I've not read it all yet, but it's shaping up to be yet another outstanding read - thank you. There are a couple of minor proofing glitches, but no point being picky with something that has been put together so well.
    From what I've read so far, Sam's article was the stand-out item, especially as I went to English GCSE evening classes a couple of years ago (I was 57 then). I didn't have the opportunity to stay for GCSE work (O-level as it was then called) when I was a teen. I was a bit of a loose cannon but credit to the tutor as she never once tried to shut me down.
    I'll read the rest of the articles when I'm less tired.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Oh! And those are wonderful watercolors, by the way.

    Wow. This is my first Newsletter--I've produced a couple myself in a galaxy far away so I know how much it takes to assemble consistently high-quality content packaged in a professional and visually pleasing format , such as we have here. Kudos to all involved. I enjoyed SAM's well-written column, esp. his point that current pedagogy stifles creativity in students AND teachers. When I was new to the game, I insisted on reading every poem aloud in class. Senior faculty argued this was a waste of valuable discussion time. Over the years, when old students have contacted me, 100% have commented on how important it had been for them to hear the great poems of our tradition. Sam's column reminded me of all this. Sometimes the simplest iconoclastic jog off the beaten trail can open creative doors that might otherwise have remained closed. Thanks Sam.

    Thank you for all the kind comments about the newsletter. The Media Team do an excellent job of producing a professional and standout circular each month. I'm only one cog in a large wheel, but I'm humbled by the comments on my article nonetheless.
