Over the next few weeks, I would like to share a weekly poem from my poetry collection as I try out some ideas for sharing my work more widely. Please feel free to leave a comment below or send me private feedback about the poem, its presentation (graphics), and this sharing concept.
About This Week’s Poem:
My poem, entitled “Bon Voyage”, has been submitted to the 2015 The Walrus Magazine Poetry Prize Contest* and Readers’ Choice Award(*). This poem was originally composed as an email to a friend departing on a journey in which I was to later join. As it frequently happens, much of my poetry begins as a message to another, composed as an email or a letter or even a Facebook comment. When I realise that this is happening, I reformat the text into verse and my fun with it takes over.
(*) The shortlist will be released and voting for the Readers’ Choice Award will begin on September 1, 2015. If my poem is shortlisted, I will provide the link where votes may be cast, and if you enjoyed my poem, I would much appreciate your vote! Thank you in advance!
