The DiS Writers Thread - Results

This is it…I have an overly complex and clunky excel spreadsheet ready to go (ah, the romance), collating lists from 45 (!) DiSsers who between them nominated 424 different writers (comprising authors, poets, playwrights, graphic novelists, non-fiction writers, songwriters…and more) which has now been whittled down by myself to 100.

Even from just my own perspective, this is not a very conventional list…

First entry coming soon.

good to see people getting their fake entries in to make themselves look smart straight off the bat

Can we do lists now?
