MEETUPS : August (np)
PROJECT : My main aim is to publish a third collection of poems, the last one going all the way back to 2005 and now out of print. I have many poems to choose from, spanning many years, about a third published in magazines and anthologies. Failing the collection, I may try for several pamphlets.
I also have remnants of a novel I keep tinkering with and would like to wrap up one way or another.
QUOTE : ‘There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’ Leonard Cohen.
‘Poetry is the music of being human.’ Carol Ann Duffy
PROGRESS REPORT : I have put together a pamphlet-sized selection of poems to enter in the Poetry Business Pamphlet Competition, working title Life Drawings.
I am renewing efforts to send poems out to magazines, anthologies and competitions. I have three forthcoming in the North, one in Acumen and one in Antiphon at present.
