More poetry news this month as three of my poems are published in the Summer 2015 issue of Message in a Bottle Magazine. These are an abstract batch of mine, which are metaphorical, rather than the realistic and reflective poems in my debut collection published this month, A Model Archaeologist from Eyewear Publishing.

As a poet, I try my best to be versatile in my approach to writing free verse. Learning is best from experience in my opinion – and a lifelong pursuit is even better 📚
