My Poetry News

An update on my own writing – having begun to write again earlier this year, I’m very glad to say that the past couple of weeks I’ve had a bit of a lucky run.

I sent out a little bundle of poems and now have some in three forthcoming publications, one in an art exhibition and one was Highly Commended in a poetry competition.

Of Earth and Sky project by artist Luke Jerram

Some of my words have been chosen alongside those of other poets, by artist Luke Jerram of Museum of the Moon for the ‘Of Earth and Sky’ exhibition @OfEarthandSky

and they’re written into the landscape of the city of Gloucester, U.K. Luke’s Gaia Earth is the pinnacle of the ‘Earth and Sky’ exhibition and you can find out the Gaia Earth tour dates here
