This week’s Featured Poet is Jess Winch

So, you may have noticed that there was no Featured Poet last week… don’t worry, the concept is still going strong! The week’s poet just postponed in order to coincide his appearance here with his forthcoming book launch… exciting! So, back to the schedule, and I am very pleased to announce that this week’s Featured Poet is Ms Jess Winch!

Jess Winch is in her final year studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. She has just returned from a year abroad in Barcelona, where she spent a lot of time drinking coffee and was bitten by the poetry bug. While in Spain, she enrolled on an online writing workshop, which gave her the confidence to continue writing poetry on her return to Scotland. Her goals now are to graduate, write at least five memorable poems, and work out how to combine a job with a Masters degree with a year in France.


all in white
with feet bare

a cracked hand
that tousles
your hair

a jazz beat,
low like
a heartbeat

the smart rush
of sea salt
in air

i am silk
lying rich
on your skin

on your tongue

the promising
step to

And the smile
in your heart
when it’s done

    Do not know how high the sky is until one climbs up the tops of piles , and do not know how thick the dry land is until one comes to the deep river. There is simply one achiever — to be able to spend your life in your own way.
