So lovely to get an email from my publisher, Ronnie Goodyer of Indigo Dreams yesterday, saying that my second poetry collection, Map Reading for Beginners, will be published by them in 2014. I've had a lot of good fortune these last few weeks regarding poetry, with my reading at the Arnolfini as part of Bristol Poetry Festival still to come on Saturday night. It's all been very exciting.
And as it's National Poetry Day today and the theme is water, here's a link to a watery poem of mine, which will be in the above collection. Have a great day, every poet - go forth and metaphorify!
