WARMING UP TO SING FOR MY SUPPER
Dear neighbours and friends in Hogsback,
Those of you who supported the recent Love Poems and Songs performances at Back o’ the Moon and Starways – your participation was encouraging and deeply strengthening. It is because of your support that I’m daring now to put out this notice.
I’ve in fact been doing far more than writing poems and creating Norman’s and my little book. (Copies are still available should you wish!)
Time has come to share with you some of what else has been happening at High Riding. In case you’re curious. Not much housework, alas. However.
I run a monthly literary newsletter, making available some of the newest poetic voices in the land. Do allow yourself a little browse. It is available online on the following link http://perspective-publications.com/give-your-writing-the-edge/
The ‘Plop a Penny’ option has been set up to help keep the venture going, as neither the site hostess, Leigh Barrett, nor I currently enjoy an income. (Nor is there a widow’s pension, so I truly am obliged to sing for my supper, with my Norman’s spirit and the higher powers in attendance.)
Furthermore, most of you know me as a poet, or the poet’s wife; but if you are curious to taste some of my prose fiction, please have a look at the Story Kiosk, which went live yesterday. The link is http://www.perspective-publications.com/story-kiosk/
Here too is an option to ‘Show your thanks’ by plopping three and a half pennies, in a manner of speaking.
The penny-dropping into Leigh’s and my hat is not obligatory. It is an option if you feel moved to do so.
This venture is an experiment and I’d be grateful if you shared this information with anybody you feel might be interested and keen to visit the links. I’d also hugely appreciate feedback.
Incidentally, ‘Goldilocks and the Seven Bears’ (available on the above link) is an extremely fast, funny read and should give your day a lift, should that be needed. It would be good to see some traffic on the site.
Have a beautiful day on the mountain’s musical-misty drippiness.
