“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It’s that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that’s what the poet does.”

Allen Ginsberg, from Ginsberg, A Biography

Following the successful completion of my second poetry marathon in June 2020, I once again successfully submitted one of the poems written during the marathon which was included in this awesome anthology alongside the work of so many other talented writers.

The Poetry Marathon Anthology 2019

After successfully taking part in my first ever poetry marathon; an endurance writing event that takes place over 24 hours once each year, in 2019, I was honoured to have one of my poems immortalised in anthology form alongside the work of all of the other talented poets who completed the event.

Lockdown 2021: Writing Initiative

When the global pandemic caused by the Coronavirus struck in 2020 it would never have been suspected that over a year later some of us would still be living in lockdown. The Lockdown Writing Initiative writing group gave the creative minds cooped up at home an outlet to vent their frustrations in verse form and fictitious exploration.

The results are collated here in this second full collection brought together by Sam McGurran and the LWI team.

An outstanding collection of creative writing which deals with the many emotive experiences of those living through challenging times. Relatable and raw this collection will resonate with readers and writers alike.

To Hell In A Flash

When I returned to full-time academia in 2018 I was inordinately lucky to work with a myriad of writers of many different styles and stages.

To Hell In A Flash‘ is a collaboration of fresh creative minds with one shared goal: to horrify our readers.

I along with three other contributing authors helped edit this collection and bring it to publication.

“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
