Dylan Thomas

Here's a link to a friend's webpage; he's a songwriter and lists myself and Dylan Thomas as his influences.

This is actually how my poem appeared in the magazine, in the top right corner of the page. I maybe should have placed the page at an angle whwn I was scanning it.


I've just made two attempts to upload scans of my poems in a magazine called 'Horace' which I only received this morning although it seems to have been published last year. I'll have another go with the scans tomorrow at the library.

Writers' Workshop

The writers' workshop which I'm leading at the community centre at Rossington has been going for four weeks now. At the moment there are three regular attendees; I'd prefer a few more, but it's enough.

So far we've done one writing exercise, from which I produced a poem which I'll be able to submit for publication.

Words that I'd use to describe my poetry.

'what if?'

It passes the time

I've spent the morning at Rossington leading the writers' workshop. The bus journey back into town takes twenty minutes and so I passed the time by writing this short poem.

He noticed the sign that read
'No glasses beyond this point.'
He didn't see the next one though.

A busy start to the New Year

I estimate I must have posted off my poems to about twenty magazines so far this month. Already six of my short poems have been accepted for publication by Presence magazine.
