Donald Rawe, Chairman of the Cornish Literary Guild, and Marjorie James from the same organisation present the Cornish Literary Guild Salver to Laurence Green.

We were proud to attend the 2014 Holyer an Gof awards at Waterstones in Truro on 15th July to witness Laurence Green pick up the prestigious Cornish Literary Guild Salver for outstanding authorship for his book All Cornwall Thunders at My Door: A Biography of Charles Causley. The award was presented by Donald Rawe, a longstanding friend of Causley, who gave a lengthy and heartfelt speech about the Cornish poet and of how much he appreciated this first biography of "the greatest poet laureate we never had." Hopefully this is the first of many such awards, for both Laurence and for The Cornovia Press, and, fittingly, Following 'An Gof', the biography of Len Truran by Derek R. Williams, is to be submitted for next year's awards.
