Keeping Up With the Guardian

A quick read through the UK Guardian's website revealed these interesting stories:

1) Penguin is suing 12 authors over "failure to deliver" manuscripts under contract. They are suing for return of advances plus substantial interest.

2) Looks like 10/4 is National Poetry Day over there (or 4/10 as they'd write it), and the Guardian did a brief interview with poet Alice Oswald to commemorate. Read how she copes with distractions to writing (which turn out to be her three kids) and find out that "two-thirds of the way through a poem, I enter a moment of absolute despair." A fun quick read.
