Oh my God! I have done something I never thought I would do. I have sent off a poem to a website to be considered for publication...
To put this in context you have to understand I am really not a poet. I have studied poetry writing a little but it is still something of a mystery to me...whilst I can tell what works and what doesn't work in prose, my poetry is still very hit and miss.
Soon after finishing my Creative Writing course last year I wrote a very personal poem that I thought was better than most I previously had written. I put it past a few other writers, chopped it around a little and then left it, wondering what to do with it. Until, that is, I discovered the Literary Mama website which seemed like the perfect market try for this particular poem. So it has gone. They can only say no.
I have also sent off a piece to the website Tea, Friends and Chocolate. Anything I write for there is going to be anonymous, but I couldn't miss the chance to plug the website for the lovely Sue!
