Happy National Poetry Day – 3rd October 2019

Whatever you write – think about the poetic element.

Today is the day to give poetry a fresh start. I never liked it at school because we were forced to learn poems under threat of detention.

It wasn’t until I was in my thirties and did a workshop with Canadian poet and novelist Carole Burns that I rediscovered its magic. Since then I have been writing and publishing poems. Most of my story ideas begin as poems – which gives me a second chance at publication. Some of them join forces and become novels.

For further inspiration – take a look at my book ‘Writing Success: poetry, flash fiction & short story exercises.’

Read more poems. Get writing!
