The Good Dadhood project has received encouraging feedback along the way, for example:
• I’ve loved Good Dadhood … both being involved and reading the many and varied contributions.
• … lovely project …. So refreshing to read celebrations of fathers and snapshots of their positive influences . An antidote to darker works where the focus is on blame and hurt.
• Thank you … for giving voice to love.
• … thank you for Good Dadhood … It’s been excellent!
It’s been a pleasure … which I hope to run again 1.1.18 – 17.6.18
Meanwhile if a publisher out there would like to consider publishing the poems as an anthology, perhaps linked to a family-centred charity, please do get in touch. Or if a fellow poet with publishing experience would be willing to collaborate with me to publish a Good Dadhood Anthology 2017, please do get in touch. I’d welcome the ‘learning experience’ but it’s not a venture I’d want to tackle single-handed. Two parents would be great for this baby!
Thank you again to all contributors and readers of Good Dadhood.
Enjoy Father’s Day!
