It’s a great pleasure to be launching this guest writers’ slot, in celebration of the first year of “Writing from the Twelfth House”.
My contributors are free to write what they like as long as it fits the ethos of the site – pretty clear from the Home Page!– and falls within the theme categories that I have been using. Regular readers will have gathered how important humour is to me: I have fallen back on its survival–enabling properties on innumerable occasions in my life, and feel that even the most profound, serious topics can usually benefit from humour’s leavening. So you can expect that tone from contributors to this slot.
The intention is for guest contributions to be an intermittent, rather than a regular feature. That will depend partly on how popular this GUEST slot proves to be with the site’s readers. Do let me know what you think of it by way of comments or emails!
Finally, if you have any objection to anything guests may say, compliments to pay them, or wish to pursue further the topics they have raised, do take that up with them rather than with me. But please feel free also to leave your comments at the end of any of the Guest articles. It will always be possible to make contact with my guests via either their websites or email addresses.
