Gareth Lewis

I am extremely sad that Gareth Lewis, editor/publisher at the tall-lighthouse, the independent small press that published my pamphlet The Misplaced House, has died at the age of 41.  We only met once, at the London launch of my pamphlet, but we corresponded regularly via email, particularly while we were editing my manuscript.  I was so grateful to Gareth for choosing my poems from the open submissions window at tall-lighthouse and offering me a publishing contract.  He was a talented editor and a meticulous proofreader and he had an incredible capacity for hard work, as well as a wonderful sense of humour. He will be missed and remembered by many.
