Adrian Fear leading with a line from Shakespeare
matched line for line by Angus Pope's contemporary offering in similar length.
Here, as elsewhere at LSW, Shakespeare is used as a tool to inspire new, original work,
much along the Bard's own glorious line of borrowings.

LSW Member Naomi Lewis gives lie to the fantasy that
television personalities (Emmerdale Farm) lead a soft life.  The work never ends.   It mustn't.
Here Naomi works alongside all others at her craft, luxuriating in the extraordinary language generated in WitSlings.

As with all matters LSW, it is the people participating that make the difference.
LSW is about sharing. 
Each learns one from another.

Whichever LSW Sunday it may be there are always two common elements in force:
Shared laughter and respect.  Sharing IS key.  The work at LSW must speak for itself.
