For my last module in the National Academy of Writing [NAW] graduate diploma that I am finishing at Birmingham City University, we were required to write a ‘creative response’ to W G Sebald’s interesting book [Fiction? Non-fiction? Memoir? You decide!] The Rings of Saturn.
As Sebald described his walk down the eastern coast of England, making connections to historical events along the way, it was easy for me to write about my own journey to the places [and, in a few instances, people] which intersect with ‘my’ writers, ‘such friends.’ As Sebald did, I have included photos.
For the purposes of this website, I have posted each of the vignettes separately, so you can choose a place and time and see what they were doing–and what I was doing. The links are below.
I hope you enjoy reading them. I’d love to know what you think. Leave a comment or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
