Black Bough Poetry ‘Deep Time’ anthology acceptance

My poem ‘Precious’ has been accepted for publication in Black Bough Poetry‘s first anthology – ‘Deep Time’, which is inspired by Robert Macfarlane’s thought provoking ‘Underland: A Deep Time Journey’ book. I’m so pleased to have a poem in this collection, amongst so fantastic poets.  There will be two volumes, with a guest artist and composer. The first volume is due July and Volume 2 which my poem is in, available from August.

ARCADE POET COMPETITON – winner announced

And it’s me!

Back in March Cardiff City of Arcades launched a poetry competition, with the brief ‘a celebration of Cardiff’. The winning poem is displayed in one of the 7 historic Cardiff shopping arcades, alongside 6 commissioned Welsh poets. My poem is now up, in Morgan Arcade, and I’m so delighted it is alongside the lovely Mab Jones’ poem ‘Summer city’. Having grown up, and now living back in Cardiff it is a very special competition to win.  Happy days.
