Hi there, I am a disabled , happily married mother of two 6ft tall grown lads, they themselves setting out on their own now… I used to work in school as learning support assistant in classroom assistant capacity with under 8’s. I love to make jewellery, have various #craft hobbies and in the last few months have found a deep desire to write poetry. I think poetry is an understated way we can make our voices heard and believe there is great revival happening in the reading market, where poetry is the niche to encourage people to read in small doses, able to put a piece down easier than a novel. I believe strong stories and pictures can be painted in very few words enabling a reader to have opportunity to take further though and inspiration away with them.

Here is a link to the talented Mariska – Maria Szollosi with whom I collaborated to create an unusual calendar of poetry on art. See the link within her calendars here on redbubble.

Collaborative intentions - can you help me? Please?

I’ve an idea with my writing that I’d like to see it put into artform and spoken word or music or maybe all, I’m also interested in anyone who thinks they could dramatically illustrate my poetry through drama or film.
