Writing

How do you write? YOU JUST WRITE.

I’ve never been any good at self-promotion. It is particularly difficult when, as a born introvert the immediate desire is to just run away and hope people can work it out for themselves. In the modern world, however, this is not an acceptable means of communication. Therefore, it is time to stand up and do this whole business properly.

Welcome to the part of the Internet I can now legitimately call my own.

The first poem is now live.

End of the Fear #1

Poem #1 is now available to view (look for Two Tree Island) on the Places of Poetry website: the plan is to have everything pinned and mirrored on my own site by the 26th. You will be able to access that via the main menu here once I’m finished, but for now if you’d like to watch how I build a website from scratch, all poems will be popping up, a few at a time, via the Proper Bard webspace.

This is my way of giving back to the town I’ve lived in for most of my adult life, and to put it (quite literally) on the map with a sizeable, significant poetic presence. You can follow my daily blog here, or look at my Twitter feed for updates as the project comes to a conclusion. Needless to say I’m immensely excited to have almost completed this journey: it represents something both personal and integral to my life here.

We also had some unexpected and surprising news this week: more news as I’m able to give it to you.

I can add the words ‘published poet’ to my CV: a poem entered for the Poetry Society Winter 2018 Competition was picked by poet Rachel Boast as a winner!

I was asked to create a poem under the title ‘The Abstract Space’, based on work from W.S. Graham. Choosing to be inspired by his 1967 poem ‘The Beast in the Space’, I present The Beast in Cyberspace.

There’s a personal blog post about the process. Then, there’s my Official Post here. Nobody else is going to promote me, after all, so YES I’M DOING IT MYSELF.
