Benybont Site

Note for users of screen readers or magnification software 

I am endeavouring to make this website accessible to blind and partially sighted people. There are, I know, things I have to do, like ensuring all the pictures and unlabelled links are accompanied by ALT texts. This I am addressing on a piecemeal basis. This is a big site and it will take me some time to achieve this aim. However, I am assured by a visually impaired friend that the site is already reasonably accessible to those who use screen readers. So, if this applies to you, feel free to plunge in. If you find any problems, please don't hesitate to CONTACT ME.

      This site has been reconstructed from its previous incarnation as It's a large site, including not only 'samples' of my own writing, but guest writers, visual artists and musicians plus TRIOLET, a section on free and formal verse and much more. To help you find your bearings, you may wish to look at the SITE MAP. This also includes a search engine if you're looking for something specific.

Please note that most of the material that is or will be on this website is in my copyright or that of the named writers and artists and should not be used for other purposes. If you wish I can put you in touch with most of the others if you send me an e-mail.

NB: The counter will not be readable by screen reading devices. Don't worry; you won't be missing much.
