511 Portsmouth Writers

I’m getting towards the end of a book; Portsmouth a literary and pictorial tour by Matt Wingett. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. One aspect that has featured quite a bit ( unsurprisingly) are the names of famous writers mentionned in the book, they include;

  • Jane Austen
  • Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Charles Dickens
  • H G Wells
  • Beatrix Potter
  • Nevil Shute
  • Pauline Rowlson

Other famous people are associated with the city, including Ghandi and one T E Shaw (Who’s he?) turns out T E Shaw is also T E Lawrence pr Lawrence of Arabia.

It turns out that Nevil Shute wasn’t just an author. He developed the first retractable undercarriage for an aircraft.

Fascinating stuff.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
