Why am I doing this?

I decided that it was time I got my act together and did something about promoting my writing.

After many years of getting my poems published in various anthologies, poetry magazines and on Poetry Scotland’s Open Mouse, this year I really am going to make a concerted effort to put together a collection. About half of them have been published; some of the remainder will have been read at The Bakehouse or other venues; others will be revealed for the first time apart from being in emails to supportive friends. (I owe a great deal to those friends who have never given up on their support and encouragement.)

I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve said that I’m putting  a collection together. In the past I’ve never managed to settle on the poems that will be included, but this time,  after publicly commiting myself to doing it, perhaps it will happen …

Now fulfilling my ten year old self's ambition to become a writer - it's taken many years and a long,long winding road to get here! After a lifetime spent teaching, making miniature ceramics, returning to teaching and training, I am now indulging in a lifelong ambition to write!
