[*] At the end of Martin Stannard’s upbeat review of my poetry chapbook ‘Professions’ here, he made a suggestion for further writing:
The only other thing I have to say is that there is scope for another set of these things, because all kinds of professions remain to be written about. The surface has barely been scratched. I’m thinking, for example, of tripe dreamers, lantern dressers, violin stringers, nose touchers, chestnut counters, mattress washers, mitten strummers, card stunters, peach worriers and unicorn whiteners among others. Perhaps someone will write a companion volume to Professions one day soon, or maybe Ferguson will do it himself.
