Ruth is a community radio presenter from Manchester UK. Her love for poetry came from her Mum who would regularly read poetry to her as a child, and her grandad who wrote plays in Ireland and featured in one of the first talking movies to ever be made. At school she wrote the longest stories in English class which other kids enjoyed, but later focused her skills to copy writing. She always regrets not sticking with creative writing so decided to share a few poems she wrote with you! You'll mainly find short poems on Ruth's page, which she hopes will serve you like taking a shot of the poetic variety, read & go without using up too much mental battery! In 2002 she completed a Diploma in Journal Therapy and believes that writing is one of the best forms of personal therapy there is when it comes to dealing with anger and organising your life. Always take time to write with good old fashioned pen and paper. Write for yourself first then others if you feel you want to. Ruth takes inspiration from many sources but the natural and unseen world is a favourite, as well as a few reworked fairy tales. She feels that reading and appreciating the work of others is as much part of the creative experience as writing it and enjoys partaking in both in equal measure! Reading a good piece can be so mood enhancing, thought provoking and inspiring.
To be a writer
I've become a fighter To be a writer Daily battles of rage To stave off A blank page Ah Yes The pen is indeed Mightier than The Sword
