My companero Ian Rowlands (speaker, guide, festival organiser, writer, thinker, eminence grise) and I are soon to launch a monthly podcast entitled Beneath the Stream: the human experience in the non-human world. More details to follow including first few episodes and its own website. We’ll be available through all the normal outlets.
Overdue news: I was invited to speak at a wonderfully eclectic event at the Said Business School in Oxford in early July where I presented on predators and the human imagination. It was an engaged and stimulating audience who took the post-talk discussion in all sorts of challenging directions. Looking forward to next year.
I was guest speaker at Aardvark books in July for their Mortimer Food Festival. Great people. Great food and a fantastic bookshop if ever you’re passing through Brampton Bryan.
It was my pleasure recently to chair some talks at the Wealden Literary Festival, a new celebration of writing and nature which promises to be an exciting annual fixture. I chaired talks with Dan Richards, Will Atkins and Adam Thorpe. More images of the day to follow. http://www.wealdenliteraryfestival.co.uk/
Those of you that support the Society of Wildlife Artists will be able to see my review of their 2014 Natural Eye exhibition at The Mall Galleries in their in-house magazine Natural Notebook. Other talks are coming up which I’ll post on the Twitter feed and the homepage will hold the most recent words about Shadows in the Hay.
Thanks to all who came last night to the launch of Shadows in the Hay, it was a pleasure to meet everyone and especial thanks go to the wonderful folks of Rossiter Books in Ross-on-Wye for hosting. More pics will be uploaded soon and keep checking the twitter feed @CRWilliams
The words have finally been written, the pictures fettled with and the proofs approved. The book is at the printers. More details to follow but the launch will on November 11th and there’ll be several follow-up events.
Apologies for the news blackout.
The book is finished and delivered and work starts on the next one and the commissions and other projects of which there are far too many to bring to full fruition.
I’ve provided the words for the upcoming and exciting WhaleFest exhibition at Brighton’s ONCA gallery and will be at WhaleFest. The interviews and words created for last year’s writer-in-residence project have now been taken down from the WhaleFest page but they may get published in an e-book soon so watch this space.
Meanwhile, most of the news is on the twitter feed. Click the follow button at the top of the page.
Research nearly complete, late nights in full flow and papers covering the entire study, the book is at the crucial two thirds stage. Keep following the Twitter updates for news.
