So if you can imagine us at Free The Blog central, emerging from the sleeping bags we've been hibernating in since last autumn, blinking and rubbing our eyes; well, this is notice that we're slowly waking up and joining the world of blogging again.
All of which is a roundabout way of saying that this year's Free The Word festival is drawing close, and so we'll be springing back to life. Over the next few weeks, we'll bring you news of what's happening during the festival, as well as reflections on some of the issues and subjects raised by the events and discussions.
And at the end of the week, we'll also be launching the latest of our collaborations with International PEN: 26:50. Marking 50 years of the Writers in Prison committee, we'll tell you more about it in the next few days. But for now, please bookmark and add to your readers 26-50.tumblr.com
Hello, hello, it's good to be back.
