Here’s the latest stuff for 2019…
National Poetry Day 2019
Thursday 30th October.
To celebrate the UK’s National Poetry Day, I have revised my latest poem – The Guitarist – and published it on this blog. This replaces the earlier version that previously appeared on that page.
Later today, I plan to publish some of my pieces from 1964. I have spent recent days transcribing and editing Volume One of my collected anthologies.
15th September 2019
For the rest of this year, I need to finish what I have started. I am beginning to plan my work for 2020. Most of next year’s work will be completing major projects, such as my book about The History of Music in Leicester. I have two novels that are still to be completed and two more that are still at the envisioning stage. I also want to finish my anthology of poems from the earliest time to the present day. It will be a busy year. But then, all years are busy, these days.
Today marked the launch of the book An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Leicester, edited by Jon Wilks. This contains a piece written by me about the history of live music in Leicester.
I look at the future of written language.
Work in progress. Today I am writing about climate change. Being a writer, that is the one thing I can do to respond to what the future looks like. Earlier this year, I made a commitment to write about global warming and now I am doing just that.
Audio blog launched
Today I launch my audio page. As yet experimental, the test tracks are to assess the viability of the idea.

Shipwreck drama off the coast of Scotland
Today I publish an article about my father’s involvement in saving lives of men wrecked at sea, off the coast of Scotland.
All the rest
Oh! Where has all the rest gone?
I have shortened this, the front page, of my website.
Other websites by Trevor Locke
I used to edit an online magazine called Arts in Leicestershire. There is an archive site where articles from it are now stored online.
I also publish a magazine called Music in Leicester.
