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!

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

I like your poetry. What was the name of your grandad who wrote plays in Ireland?
