    Please can you tell me how to pay my fee of £3 to the Fellowship Account. Can I go to my bank to do this? I have already sent in my poem The Reader. I have recorded the bank details so I will be able to do this tomorrow. Or I could send a cheque if I have the address please. Can I pay via PayPal?
