About Walking with Writers


My name’s John Kruse and I have created the walkingwithwriters blog with the aim of promoting literary rambling- walks with a purpose- some routes that are planned to inspire you to get out and explore, rather than just reading your favourite authors.

I have already posted on this subject on one of my other blogs- johnkruseblog.wordpress.com.  There I discussed the impressive rambling exploits of Ivor Gurney, William Blake and Samuel Bamford.  I’m going to revisit all three of those but the plan is to add a lot more writers as well.

Besides literature, my other interests include the arts, especially painting and theatre, music (see broadcastbarnsley.wordpress.com) and British folklore (see my third blog britishfairies.wordpress.com).
