It is riveting to hear from Legend Press that we are receiving entries from many different parts of the world. As Luke’s Mother, I am very aware how Luke enjoyed travelling and meeting people regardless of their colour or creed. It is captivating that Luke’s philosophy; everyone deserves respect and to be given a chance in life, is being continued in the way we are developing the Bursary welcoming all submissions, abiding by the rules of course!
Last year’s winner Lyn Farrell with her book The Wacky Man is demonstrating in many delightful ways what generosity of spirit really means. Lyn has many reasons as to why she might have decided to become a recluse and avoid relationships with people but no, she has embraced the challenges that life has thrown at her and is developing her talents not only as a writer but as a singer as well. Her book The Wacky Man is available on Amazon, buy a copy and see what you think! For me reading it has changed me forever. It demonstrates how indomitable the human spirit can be. Lyn is also proving to be a genuine ambassador for Luke’s Bursary and I am proud to be beginning to know her as a friend.
