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.
