The Supercargo At the Quill

My name is John Nixon and my Internet handle is TheSupercargo. I’m English, though I’ve now lived longer in Sweden than in Britain.

For many years I was a teacher. Now I am a writer, translator, photographer, web-bum and a few more things besides – and not necessarily in that order. To find out more about me, visit this page or follow one of my social networks.

I’ve had a web presence since the late 90s, tried various website forms and various service providers, and now I’m happily settled with WordPress and a Scandinavian webhotel called Binero. My main site was and remains at, but everything I was doing on the web, everything that interested me, tended to clutter things up there. In 2012, continuing in 2013, I started comparmentalising by setting up sub-domains.

At the Quill is my website for writing about writing, reading and self-publishing.

Why At the Quill ?

Just a final word about the title of the blog. When I left my last school teaching post, one of my classes presented with a quill pen and a bottle of ink. It was a nice gesture and I still have both the pen and the ink (unopened). This blog is named by way of thanks to that class.
