The writer who just didn't write

"I always thought of myself as a writer who just didn't write." So said Judith Hart and many of us can identify with that. Ms Hart, who died recently, became a successful novelist when she got going but also did a great deal to promote poetry through her poetry evenings at the British Library. Some of readings were published  in the enjoyable CD "Catching life by the throat."

She was a Mullingar girl who worked in the ESB showrooms in the town and acted in a local drama group before setting sail for London.

The Guardian obituary is here.
