  3. Hi Suzannah, you were recently named in an OCA (Open College of the Arts tweet) in regard to a text you wrote about an underground stream in Sheffield. As I understand this was part of your submission for the OCA psycho-geography short course. Any chance of reading it!? Am just starting and planning to write about an old town stream that used to run into my local town of Wellington in Somerset. Happy to donate something for doing so. Cheers Amano
