We were shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden death of poet, writer and teacher, Dinesh Allirajah. We had the pleasure of working with Dinesh in 2007 when he did a superb job coordinating our first Liverpool Young Writers Project. He also appeared, reading his own poetry, at our festival on a number of occasions. Dinesh was a very talented writer, an excellent performer and a wonderful person, who made a major contribution to arts and culture across the North-West. He was respected and admired by our festival audiences, our young writers and all at Writing on the Wall. He will be missed by many people. We extend our thoughts and sympathies to his family and friends at this difficult time, and wish them all the best for the future.
Co-Directors Mike Morris and Madeline Heneghan on behalf of all at Writing on the Wall.
