Story

I am planning to raise funds for the historic Plymouth Proprietary Library ( www.theppl.org.uk ), an independent subscription library and registered charity on North Hill, Plymouth. I have been dedicating my spare time to volunteering here since October 2015, the members and staff are all very friendly, and the building itself has a long and enduring history, so my fundraising will go towards sustaining this institution, its members, and its history. My first fundraising endeavor is writing a poem a day for the entirety of October 2016 and then (hopefully) getting them all bound into a printed volume, the proceeds of which will go towards the library. Following this, I aim to arrange a few local and Plymouth University-based events, so keep your ears and eyes open for developments, and please, give what you can.
My poetry can be viewed via this link: www.laurareinbach.blogspot.co.uk

    My my it has been a while and I have definitely been letting this campaign stagnate (granted I did have coursework to submit). But things are looking up potentially on the publishing side. And if I can get talking to people, I may be able to do a little more advertising. Had another physical donation from the wonderful Elaine Henderson who runs the library's Proofreading courses (no more courses for the foreseeable months, but if you are interested, check it out). That's all for now.

    So, the poetry challenge is now over - what a rollercoaster that was! But this campaign is by no means over. Still got over a month yet. With assignments taking up alot of my time, I haven't had a chance to address the issue of editing/publication/further fundraising. But I will do my best to get something together before the end of the month. Again thank you to everyone who has donated thus far. You're putting your money to a worthy cause.

    Today I have yet again made my life harder by having to double up on my poetry. Oh well, I've had another donation from the lovely Jo Pine while attending the library's own Beatrix Potter talk by Elaine Henderson as part of the Plymouth Literature Festival. Many thanks for that. And yes, once I get back on track, it'll just be another 4 poems to go. Then it's down to the serious business of figuring out how to get them edited and published. Any help in that respect would be appreciated.
