Author News for Poet Kevin Morris

I was delighted to receive the braille edition of my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” through the post today.

I had emailed The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) on 8 August with a request that my book be transcribed into braille. On the same date I received an acknowledgement of my request and today (as already mentioned) my pamphlet was delivered. Hats off to RNIB for their excellent work!

My previous collection, “My Old Clock I Wind and Other Poems” is also available, in braille from the RNIB, https://newauthoronline.com/2017/08/09/my-old-clock-i-wind-and-other-poems-is-available-in-braille-from-rnib/.

The ebook and print versions of “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” will be available in September, so the braille edition is the first on the block!

RNIB have provided me with my own personal copy of “The Writer’s Pen” (it is not currently available for loan or sale from them). I will, however contact RNIB with a request that they add my latest collection to their stock in order that it is available to other braille users.

As many of you will know, I was honoured to be interviewed by Ariadne Sawyer, of The World Poetry Reading Series, on Thursday 9 August, https://newauthoronline.com/2018/08/05/kevins-poetry-to-be-featured-on-the-world-poetry-reading-series-at-110-pm-on-thursday-9-august/, regarding “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”.

I am pleased to report that the interview went well (my phone behaved itself and I dialled in 10 minutes prior to the start of the interview)!

I shall post a link to the podcast of my interview once this becomes available.

Problems in listening to the podcast of my interview on the World Poetry Reading Series

I would like to apologise for the difficulties encountered by some readers when attempting to listen to the podcast of my recent interview on Vancouver Co-op Radio. Several people, (including my own dear mum)! Have contacted me saying that they could not access the broadcast (a link to which can be found here, http://worldpoetry.ca/?p=11765).

Having (initially) been able to listen to the programme, I was unaware of the problems experienced by others in accessing the broadcast. However, having encountered the same problem while attempting to listen earlier today, I contacted Vancouver Co-op Radio and received the following response which does, essentially boil down to the need to use Google Chrome:

“Our archives are flash based and Google does not support Flash any longer. As an under-resourced organization, we are not in the position to upgrade to
HTML5 for our players until the earliest at the end of 2017.
You can, however, enable flash in your browser. Ensure you have the latest updated version of Google Chrome and you can read the following to help you
understand what is happening:

I hope to get this upgraded or have a temporary solution in place soon”.

Once again, please accept my apologies.

Kevin
