Pollysworda is my blog, that is Mal Dewhirst, Poet, Writer and Film Maker. It will be updated weekly with my thoughts on what is annoying me delighting me and what is in my car cd player. There will also be a bit of an essay on what I am doing and thinking about.
The name Pollysworda was the name in the domesday book for Polesworth in North Warwickshire. Where I developed a Poets trail.
Pollysworda was used as the name of my film which documented the development of the first phase of the trail. I also like the suggestion that it represents “Many Words” which I hope to write on this blog.
Mal Dewhirst is a “poetic dynamo, with a regular, interesting and informative blog.”

“Mal Dewhirst is a Poetry Activist whose weekly blog is sharp, incisive, full of what is going on poetically in the area, and who likes the same music as me! His forgotten poets section is always of interest.”
