Poetry is an odd past time, the work can be as quick as lightning striking into your mind or as slow as a glacier trundling its way down a valley. Either way, the words, rhymes and work feel the need to come out onto the page.
I will be publishing here various bits and pieces of my work; that which I submit to the various literary festivals & competitions that are successfully published will then be posted up on here, with links etc. Seeking neither fame nor fortune, just writing for the enjoyment of it and hoping that through publication it can be shared with anyone who is that way inclined!
I also have created a Twitter account for this website. @never_ink, which will become my primary method of releasing my own newly published creative work, as well as a platform for sharing everything from creative that takes my interest; from art, poetry, photography and literature! This is in order to try to bring a balance between my work, activism & academic pursuits versus my creative activities, which have quite different audiences.
At some point in the not too distance future, I shall be assembling a collection for submission to publishers who may be willing to accept my work for print. I have forty or so candidates around a central or connected theme, many of them need much more work.
Another project which is also bouncing around has lead me to speaking with an incredible photographer who may be collaborating with me on a second collection on a different theme over the coming years. It’s exciting stuff, to get an idea for a collection and then to begin the rough drafting of a frame for the project.
