The first proper poem I ever wrote.
You may have heard that I had a poem accepted by Emma Press for their latest anthology. I am thrilled to bits and will be attending the book launch, which takes place on Zoom on Oct 2, 2020 at 07:00 PM (London time!)
If you would like to join in, you can use this link to register for the event.
The Emma Press anthology of Illness is available from the Emma Press webshop.
Yes I am celebrating my birthday today, and the best way I know to do that is to share some of my latest poetry with you.
This poem is from the zine I have been working on over the summer. It contains eight new poems and three collage art illustrations.
The zine is called Profoundly Pandora and it is available on Etsy.
I have a new poem that has been published on poet Abegail Morley’s website The Poetry Shed.
This month’s Haiku Pea podcast is all about ageing. To listen to the podcast or read the transcribed shownotes, please go to the Poetry Pea website.
My contribution to Poetry Pea’s latest Haiku Pea podcast shows that I am not a very good cook! To be clear, the haiku in the image represented here is not the same haiku as in the podcast. So, if you’d like to hear it, you can listen to the podcast or read the show notes at the link above.
A bit of news
April is nearly here and I have come up with a little project for NaPoWriMo (national poetry writing month). I will be posting ekphrastic haiku and erasure poetry (e.g. blackout poetry) on alternating days. I will post across three platforms: this website, my Instagram account and my Twitter.
If you are already following me on more than one platform, please feel free to pick your favourite and mute notifications, or unfollow me, on the others. I wouldn’t want the responsibility of giving you a bad case of déjà vu!
I haven’t been very active, except on Instagram, but that is going to change in the near future. That does mean however that there will be duplicate content across channels!
I am looking forward to sharing with you what I have been working on.
