|"Me and my bayan" from the Accord post at Vie Hebdomadaires: "a contrived image – a pastiche of the kind of grainy monochrome pictures you see in photojournalism pieces on people who’ve returned to their villages in the Chernobyl exclusion zone"|
I recently mentioned Varun Kothamachu's collaborative weblog, Vie Hebdomadaires, which is devoted to a year of week-in-the-life slots from guest writers.
Clare contributed from June 25th to July 1st (intro / Ratatouille / Clare versus the literary world / Neighbours, everybody needs good neighbours / Writing competitions / Mamma Mia! / Vissi d’arte / The last post).
But in mid-July there was a bit of a hiatus due to the scheduled writer dropping out, so I volunteered for July 23rd to July 29th to give a bit more time to find the next one. It turned out to be a condensation / retread of regular topics from JSBlog (intro / In the heart of England / Exeter memories / Accord / Perambulation / Getting ink / Returning / The other woman).
The setup is that each contributor nominates the next, and I'm pleased to report that Felix Grant will write for the forthcoming week.
