Very pleased to tell you…

paper on floorI’m very pleased to tell you that tall-lighthouse is going to publish a pamphlet of about twenty of my poems in late 2014. I’m still working on a title and have spent much of today sitting on my stripy rug, scribbling down ideas, as well as going for a muddy walk to help me think. I now need to work on ordering the poems and making them as good as I can before I send the full manuscript to Gareth Lewis at tall-lighthouse. I almost said “before I send the full manuscript to my editor” but I didn’t dare. I won’t believe this is true until the finished book is in my hands.

For now, I have dinner to cook for my children and decisions to make about what to read with my shared reading groups tomorrow and on Thursday. Newsflash to self: the world carries on even when your heart is skipping with good news.

      Thanks for those kind words, Richard! Hardly selfless – although I had no idea when I started ‘And Other Poems’ that I’d be rewarded with invitations to read and to submit work. I don’t give with the hope that I’ll receive but I do feel rich today! xx

    Hurrah!! How brilliant is that! What a great press to be with. Loved recent pamphlets by Ben Parker and Harry Man … well done Josephine, you did well to ‘hold out’ … πŸ™‚ R x
