It is with trepidation that I move into the world of poetry and yet it is a world full of like-minded people. Creative souls with artistic minds.
During the 2018 Poetry Festival, I met two very distinguished poets. Jo Bell a poet, tutor and begetter of poetry projects and Georgina Wilding, our very own young Nottingham Poet Laureate.
Along with a number of other eminent poets they have inspired me to develop my own poetry and to continue to strive for improvement.
Having read ‘How To Be A Poet’ written by Jo Bell and Jane Commane, I am energised into writing another collection of poetry.
The book contains a myriad of advice; ideas that help and guide but above all, encouragement to grant oneself permission to continue reading, writing and redrafting.
I am looking forward to attending many poetry events in and around the country during 2019.
