I’ve been iCiNG-ed!
Just to let you know that a while ago, the spectacular Ms Gala Darling interviewed me for her “I Want To Be…” feature - a series of interviews with kick-ass people who are making their way in the world, doing the stuff they love. My interview is, of course, I Want To Be… A Poet!, and you are all welcome to go read, comment, and let Gala know what you thought!
I’m thinking that the interview might bring a few new faces to this blog, so I also just want to say hello and welcome to anyone who’s found their way here off the back of that article. In case you’re not sure, this is a brand new, positivity-focussed advice blog for aspiring young poets and writers. Here, you can:
- get your work published. ONS is only a new resource, and so far we’ve only had one Featured Poet, but I’m hoping to feature a new poet weekly, so click this link to find out more (if you submit your work, you could have a selection published on the blog, and get the chance to tell the world about your own creative processes, your influences, etc)! I’m also looking for guest bloggers to write about their pet poetry hates, burning poetic issues or personal writing experiences.
+ heaps more, no doubt!
If you’re not sure where to start, here are some recent articles:

Don’t forget: you’re welcome to get in touch, even if it’s just to say hi! Reckon there’s a question Gala forgot to ask me? Ask away!
