Biography

I am a keen member of Stockport Write Out Loud we meet every second Monday of the month I have been going since it first started in the Art Gallery in Stockport over two years ago. I find the inspiration of being in a group plus going on the Write Out Website has helped me get several poems published. I am also a member of Stockport Writers and The Midweek Club and have just finished a creative writing course at Stockport College. I have been writing poetry for most of my life and find it can take you into a world that is very close to the one you enter when dreaming.

Loved your comment, ⭐, thank you so much. I'm very new to this website. Greg gave me his card so that I can upload my thing. You're very observant, amazing a man can notice a woman's red painted toe nails!

went great Nigel on Saturday. had a really good laugh, as it got wrapped quickly - i ended up doing two poems for them, hopefully both will go live next week. will be sharing them on here for that defo and will be mentioning it at stockport when i am there next.

also - i sent two poems over to Rachel last night, one of which needed some major ish rewriting from but i am hopeful at least one will be accepted. yeah, it was a really good workshop (I came away in total after redrafting last night - 9 poems).

hope you enjoyed your dizzy blonde (:

See you soon
