Yesterday’s post was, quite rightly, all about Sally and the other stellar poets at the Callander festival. However, I have some news of my own that I am just busting to tell.
My first collection, working title Wherever We Live Now, has been accepted by Red Squirrel Press and will come out about this time next year. Here you can see what I wrote about the wonder of nature (no, I hadn’t submitted by then!)that is Sheila Wakefield. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be working with her and joining the line-up of marvellous poets she publishes – Eleanor Livingstone, Nalini Paul, Colin Will, Kevin Cadwallender, Colin Donati, Andy Jackson —
I could go on, but even after four days I’m too excited to concentrate. I’d forget someone wonderful and be mortified.
All I can say is, watch this space.
