As we approach two years of pandemic life, I’m realising more and more that it’s unrealistic to expect my writing habits to have remained unchanged in this time. I’m not the person I was in January 2020. Neither are you.
Here are some things I loved during September 2021 (yes, this post is a little late, but life is busy like that!)
AD – press ticket | I was thrilled to attend one of the three Festival weekend days, making my way into Winchester on Saturday 9 October for around seven hours of stanzas, syllables and sonnets.
Happy National Poetry Day 2021! Here's my latest poem; an ode, of sorts, to how poetry can be found in our lives every single day.
Naturally, to mark Libraries Week 2021, I penned a poem, celebrating these special places. Happy reading!
To mark five years of blogging on this site, here are five things the last year has taught me about writing.
I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the world's performance this autumn.
AD - Press ticket | I was invited along to Beats and Eats Southampton, run by The Village Popup, who work to bring events like this to us lot in the south of the UK. It promised a day of great food accompanied by great music – a winning combination!
AD - PR ticket | Being well aware of my reignited love of art, local illustrator Amy Harwood kindly invited me a long to one of her first 'in person' workshops since the pandemic began – a botanical lettering event hosted in Southampton city-centre eatery The Lunch Lounge.
[AD - Press ticket] I was recently invited along to see Willy Russell’s legendary Blood Brothers at Mayflower Theatre, as part of its UK tour.
