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 poetry is still going strong.

End of the Fear #1

I’ll still very much in the process of creating a poetic fantasy around the town where I live and work. It’s a proper, grown-up endeavour which will eventually be linked to the Places of Poetry website. I’ll create a copy of all the poems, with photographs and historical information about the places and people, which are now going to be hosted for posterity on a specially-created website.

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 stuff as it happens. Needless to say I’m immensely excited to be on this journey as it represents something both personal and integral to the life of the town and its people.

Right now I’m editing the final pieces, and they will start appearing both on the Places of Poetry website and my own site beginning June 17th.

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.
