Interview at EDP

How exciting.

Turns out my poem was December’s most read at Every Day Poets so they asked for an interview.

The date has just been released on March’s Table of Comments as March 11th.

The Gradual Loss of Me at Every Day Poets

I have a poem up at EDP today.  You can link to it here.

A slight twist on a vilanelle entitled The Gradual Loss of Me.

I wrote this as part of the Open University’s A363 Advanced Creative Writing course.  It was inspired by the idea that as I wasn’t having much time to write I was losing myself. I found the form made this a far more depressing poem by cycling into a downward spiral. But don’t worry the character is fictional.

Hope you ‘enjoy’

Poem accepted

A poem I wrote for the Open University course A363 has just been accepted at Every Day Poets ( – not sure when it is being published. Had to make a slight adjustment for them so now is a slight twist on the Villanelle form. The title is The Gradual Loss of Me so look out for it.

At the same time had a rejection for another poem I wrote in repsonse to a a challenge on Slingink – think I may try elsewhere though because I like it. It was in response to a news story about Woodstock – may have been in more luck if I’d written in earlier. Ah wel – acception/rejection – keeps me all level headed.
