Welch's first vocation was painting, but after a serious bicycling accident in 1935, from which he never really recovered, he took up writing and was the author of poems, short stories and three largely autobiographical novels, Maiden Voyage (1943), In Youth is Pleasure (1945) and A Voice through a Cloud, the last, like his Journals, published posthumously (1950,52).
