  4. Many Thanks Malcolm for including my writing in the forthcoming Essex Belongs To Us.It was clearly a nice Christmas present and I look forward to seeing it in print,should you require my address etc please contact me asap.Sincerely Robert James Bridge.

  5. I had an article published in “Essex Belongs to Us”, as launched at the book festival at Chelmsford on 18th March 2017. Everything I sent to the organisers had my full name clearly written on it, including the article itself, but the standard of proofreading was obviously pretty dire, as my last name was printed as ‘Miles’ rather than ‘Mills’!. Hardly a difficult name, is it? And only a cursory “sorry” when I pointed it out. Memo to the organisers: either get some decent proof-readers next time, or send the article to the author pre-publication, so that they can proofread it properly for you. Note: 3 weeks after the book’s launch, and I am still waiting for an Errata Notice to be sent to me, as promised in writing by Malcolm Burgess.

  6. I will like to join this writer’s circle, that if there is room for it. I have tried searching for any means to do so here without success. I hope anyone here’ll help out.
