Just sharing some more micropoetry, that I wrote over the summer months. These two: 'Hedgehog' and 'Sea Oak' are among my favourites. I feel they go a little deeper than some of my other efforts.
I'm still buzzing from all the excitement of Waterford Writers' Weekend. For those that didn't make it to my reading, here is a video clip from the day. It features a poem called 'Waterford Waits', written in 2007 and inspired by Waterford Hurlers.
Magic and the Modern Witch was inspired by childhood memories of 'Clyne Gardens' a park situated just minutes from my home. My elder sister used to make up stories about the various buildings within the park.
I love writing nature poetry and have been known to dabble in a spot of photography. So, I decided to combine the two in this weekend blog post. My husband George is responsible for the stunning picture of two damselflies, taken at the lily pond in the gardens at Mount Congreve.
'The Move' is about a bitter rivalry, brewing between two residents in a small Irish Town. Having lived in London for ten years, Tina has returned home to live in a remote cottage, left to her by a great Aunt.
The Story Wise Creative Writing Workshop is back! This time, taking place in Clonmel and Dungarvan, offering people the chance to learn to write a short story in a day!
I decided to post this romantic extract from my short story collection: Heart Strings, in honour of Valentines Day. 'Teachers in Love' is a love story (obviously) and the one part of the collection which fits that genre completely.
I've been sharing this micropoetry on Twitter and Facebook over the last few weeks. But it's always satisfying to gather thoughts, moments and poems, into a place where they might make sense, or at least be kept safe. So, take a look, have a ponder, and let me know if any particular poem appeals and why. It's great to get feedback!
It's official! I'm branching out into Creative Writing tuition starting with a Short Story Workshop. For those of you still humming and hawing about whether to book a place here are a few 'Story Wise' secrets to give you a flavour of the workshop . . .
