Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

David and Harry at Caledon’s Read Local Collection

Alton Writers’ Ink members David Chesterson and Harry Posner featured in Read Local Caledon


David enjoys watercolour painting, brush and ink illustration and has written stories since childhood. He sold his first watercolour at a fair in Ilkeston, England when he was 9 years old and had his first story published in a school magazine when he was 12.

Both parents were water-colourists, but he added to their training at the College of Art and Technology and the University in Leicester, England.

Among the many friends who encouraged him are A.J.Casson, Wayson Choy, Judy Finch, John Hall, Rosemary Kilbourn, Richard Scrimger, and of course, his current companions in creativity.

His childhood can be found in his books, ‘My Caravan is a Rainbow’ and ‘Gypsy in the Clouds’. His mysteries include ‘St. Vincent Passage’ and ‘Twelfth Night in Royal Blue’. Also published is ‘Pigmented Spectacles’, a biography of Dr. Earle Kirby and, taking a completely different tack, a sci-fi spoof “Not Too Bright …”, and a trilogy of mysteries is about to be published.

Harry Posner

Harry is a self-published poet and author, whose love of writing evolved in a natural progression from short story writing to children’s picture books to poetry, novels, and spoken word performance.
