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.
Happy National Poetry Day, everyone! I'm celebrating with the release of my nature poem: Tree Sisters. It's the first time the poem has appeared online, although it has been published in my third poetry collection: 'Landscapes and Hearts'.
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.
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 I had to post a poem in honour of All Ireland Poetry Day. The choice was easy as I've been looking back at Summer, feeling the familiar relief that it's over and Autumn, in all its fiery brilliance is gaining prominence.
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.
'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.
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.
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 . . .
