You win some, you lose some

November 13, 2018

As I wrote elsewhere recently, writers need to see every rejection as a chance to make the work better.

 I’ve been showered with rejections (one of them exceptionally kind) in the past week or two, but I’m excited to see the eleventh and final draft of my circular poem I was human once in the new, planet-friendly, plastic-free issue of Magma, and very much looking forward to reading it at the London launch later this month. Tickets to this event are free but need to be booked. I am indebted to co-editor Fiona Moore for her generous and inspired suggestion of a change of title. Sometimes that’s all it takes!


On Sunday a found-poem of mine was published online at Unlost journal of found poetry and art. Big thanks to co-editors Dale Wisely and Howie Good of Ambidextrous Bloodhound Productions.
