Tributes & MessagesSheelagh Gallagher

I would like to offer my condolences and those of Lapidus. Julia was due to take part in our conference in early April and was sorely missed. Some of our members wanted to dedicate time and space to her and read from her web diary and her poetry.

I met her a couple of years ago at a poetry workshop in Derby and used her book Sudden Collapses in Public Places to great effect while I was Writer in Residence in Nottinghamshire Hospice last year.

We are just putting together our next issue of our magazine and are hoping to include a personal tribute to Julia by one of our members.
