Phillip Kelly

Biography

my name is phillip kelly , im aged 25, from Wigan, Lancashire, North West England. I am a passionate writer of short stories, poetry and film and radio scipts. I graduated from university last year with a BA JOINT HONS DEGREE IN CREATIVE WRITING AND ENGLISH ( ENGLISH LITERATURE AND LANGUAGE COMBINED ). i'm currently working as a primary school teaching assistant and plan to reapply for a post graduate primary teaching degree at Edgehill university later this year. My goal in life is to become a fully qualified and working primary school teacher whilst also writing and publishing poetry, short stories and film/radio scripts.
My fiction writing style is very complex plots and sub plots which focalise on descriptive imagery and character relationships. My fiction writing style is very much of the Victorian era style, very descriptive detail and developing a focus on characterisation rather than driving the story though plot and events. My favourite and most inspirational authors are:
-----charlotte Bronte
-----Frances Burney
-----Jane Austen
-----Thomas Hardy

my poetry style is very much based on my favourite poets Samuel Taylor Colleridge, Christina Rossetti, William Wordsworth, Alexander Pope, William Shakespeare and William Wordsworth. I always place a huge emphasis on the sound and phonological effect of my poems by using rhyme, alliteration, parallelism, repetition, assonance, consonance, onomatopoeia, and other devices. My poems often are very complex and use metaphorical and subtle meanings and are always highly descriptive. My poems usually revolve arond the themes of love, nature and scenery, war and childhood memories.

Samples

BREAK-DOWN a BREAK-UP.


Tell him it’s over,
tell him why,
tell him the truth
you won’t live a lie.

Explain it’s not him,
explain that it’s you,
explain you don’t love him
as a wife should do.

Unwilling to commit,
unwilling to marry,
unwilling to have baby
in womb to carry.

He will move on,
he will discover;
he will find love
in the arms of another.


Part as friends,
part as allies,
part on good terms,
say your goodbyes.

Part ways today,
part in sweet sorrow;
part before it’s too late,
there’s no more tomorrow.

Walk away today,
walk away now;
walk away, run away
AU REVOIR…...
SAYONARA……
CIAO…..

Fishing for Fella's

Scope out the field,
locate your target,
make your move
on a true bargain.

Set out the bait,
irresistible flesh;
the walking wriggle
for victim's interest.

Cast out the line,
straight to the point;
with charming smile,
in seductive voice.

Grow the pole, out
on the pull,
must be a big'un
down below.

Reel him in,
close and tight;
Destiny's dance,
romance at last!

Now you've got him,
hook, line and sinker;
in the back of the net,
emerge the victor.

There are no neat guidelines to this kind of 'prosetry' except identifying a condensed moment, first by seeing the whole and then its parts. It follows the exact 'formula' for short story development: plot; place setting; sequencing; character development; imagery; interesting ending, using all the normal methods but in minimum words. So the crux is vocabulary at your finger tips, and the poetry skills that come into play with the writing of good poetry in any genre. Rhythm is vital.


This 'style' requires great discipline to put the maximum effect possible into a nutshell of content.

IMO, a sense of humour is a requisite.

Hi Phillip

thanks for your comment - yes you are right its about the beginning of a love affair, just as its starting, with the anticipation and wariness of the path it is going to take...

Hello Phillip. Thanks for the comments on As It Is. Much appreciated. It's really just an ironic commentary on a religious text.Is that a Wigan kit you're wearing? Can we have your manager?

Hi Philip, many thanks for the time taken to comment, lots of detail and really appreciated. It's good to see another perspective. Interesting to hear your thoughts on the third verse - to me my key line is to see a return in a leaving.

Hi Phillip - a warm welcome to WOL. Glad you are taking part in the site. I agree with Yvonne about having a bit of a gap between poems on the blogs though, as the newest poem you put on there will seem to hide the previous one. Good luck with all your projects - you sound a busy bee :)

I look forward to your next poem but wait a couple of days or more before putting your next one up as this gives more members time to look at the current one. And as I mentioned earlier commenting on other's poems means they may look at yours and respond.

Hi Phillip you have an interesting format here. It actually sounds good read aloud althought the metre jumps around.I'd prefer line 4 to scan as : 'Explain it's not him' as for me this places the emphasis on the word not in an easier flow especially as the next line places the stress on 'You'
