Exciting news – I’m a Silver Brancher

I think some of you know that I have another blog – fmmewritespoems.wordpress.com – more poetry. less cancer.

I’m really honoured and delighted and thrilled to have been given the opportunity to have a Silver Branch feature from Black Bough Poetry.

Black Bough publish regular anthologies of imagist micro-poems (their Christmas and Winter editions are beatiful and moving and wintry and perfect), facilitate the weekly #TopTweetTuesday poetry-fest on Twitter AND have created a series of Silver Branch showcases for featured poets. I was so moved and excited to be invited to be a featured poet. Please look at what Matthew M C Smith has created here. He really demonstrates that editing is an art form in its own right.

It’s a potentially weird mix of wintriness and cancer, but I think Matt has organised it so that it works smoothly. There are poems here that I’m not sure I’d have shared without his encouragement.

I'm now in my early 50s. I started writing again as a way of exploring the world, and feel that over the last 2 years I have really grown as a writer. By day I work with children and young people with mental health difficulties. I juggle my own two children, my work, my writing practice, generally managing to keep all the balls up in the air.

    These poems are exquisite, Sarah. I especially love the owl swooping in and out of them. What a glorious collection, so deserving of being featured. You are very talented. It is always a pleasure to read you.
