Andrew E Wade

This website includes material by and about Rosemary's late husband, author, journalist, film editor and Reiki Master Andrew Wade, 1929-2012 (aka Ewart Wade) – and particularly his environmental fairy story, Jorell.

The book is fiction but the fairy is real! See this link for a review of the book and further details about its genesis, and this one for readers' responses to the book, which is loved by both children and adults.  The paperback is now out of print, but it has been issued as an e-book available from Smashwords.

Andrew and Rosemary wrote a blog about their research into psychic children: The Truth About Fairies.

Andrew's other blogs are:

The Magic of Life, interviews with exceptional people. Its most recent entry consists of tributes to Andrew – himself a remarkable person – after he died.

The Game of Life, pieces of life writing, for a memoir that never got written.

A Life in Small Stones. From time to time I (Rosemary) engage in a practice of mindful writing initiated by Satya Robyn, called 'small stones' – essentially, small pieces of observation, recorded and polished. When Andrew, in old age, became unable to sustain longer pieces of writing, I suggested he take this on. He did, with enjoyment and some delightful results, recorded in this blog.

A Poet in the Pandemic

Luckily I'm mostly an online poet. Social distancing is not required on social media. All the usual poetry groups and communities are still operating. Currently I'm mostly at  Poets and Storytellers United , for the very good reason that I'm officially its Coordinator these days – albeit with a wonderful, smooth-running, no-fuss team who don't need a lot of coordinating. I occasionally look at what's happening at dVerse ; and I'm thrilled that the archived imaginary garden with real toads is reactivating temporarily, with daily prompts for the 'poetry month' of April. Then there are the facebook groups. I'm the admin of Haiku on Friday and Tanka on Tuesday (not that they need much administration) and I sometimes look in on Found Haiku, Erotic Haiku , and NaHaiWriMo (National Haiku Writing Month). Above all there are my own poetry blogs where I share the latest work – which you'll find under the tab My Poetry Blogs at the top of the pag

Elevensies – a new poetic form

This unique, intriguing form was created by Australian poet Kerri Shying, who is eager for other poets to try it. See my article about it at Poets and Storytellers United: here .

New anthology from dVerse

The dVerse online community of blogging poets, in which I sometimes participate, has just published this beautiful new anthology of 104 poets from all over the world, who also share their work in that community: It's available from Amazon North America  and Amazon Europe . And yes, I am delighted to tell you I have two of my own poems included. We weren't invited to choose poems to submit to this anthology. Instead the editors selected from poems already shared with dVerse during a specific time period. I was surprised at which ones of mine were chosen: probably not among those I would have submitted if asked, even though I am fond of them. But tastes differ. Though I had not considered them my best work, I'm very glad that the editors valued them more highly, so that these particular poems now get much wider exposure than I would have given them. (They are At Mariner's Café and My Home River . ) These days I usually prefer ebooks to paperbacks, but this
