Today my poet hubby, Joseph Robert and I swung by the Free Verse Fair at Conway Hall in London. It goes without saying that it was great to see my poetry pamphlet, A Model Archaeologist (available from my publisher Eyewear Publishing and from my online shop Meandi Books) alongside all the other books at the stall.
The fair is on until 4.30pm today. As I’m writing over a coffee in Red Lion square park, it’s great to have a moment to enjoy the last of the nice weather in London before getting back into the throng at the fair. This is a much needed day of poetry book shopping that I have delayed for too long!
About Leilanie Stewart

Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
