Hi, I’m George.
I’ve spent most of my life writing.
Poetry, novels, lyrics, stories, and songs. Other things have also taken my time – running a writing group, a web-design business, family, hobbies.
Yet I would say that my greatest skill (and pleasure) has been in writing poetry.
But where are these poems now?
With the exception of a slim, self-published volume from 1997, titled Inverse, I keep them in boxes and folders in my office.
Hidden from view.
That’s not to say I haven’t had some success with my poems. A few have been published in small magazines, an anthology or two but that’s the exception rather than the norm.
I don’t, however, want them to stay in their boxes and folders forever. Poems should be read, that’s why we write them.
So I’ve decided to get my poems, and stories, and bits of the novel I’ve been writing for over twenty years, and some musings and ramblings, out of their boxes.
And eventually on to this site.
