  1. Hi Abegail,

    This week I launched The Chelsea Flower Show Massacre at Keats House with Templar Poetry and I wanted you to have a copy. The pamphlet was winner in their 2015 iOTA SHOTS award and it’s been getting some great reviews.

    May I send you a copy to thank you for your encouragement? What’s the best address?

    Best wishes, Mark
