Poetry Matters (10): Featured Poet on 'Quill and Parchment'

My thanks to Sharmagne Leland-St. John for publishing two of my poems and for inviting me to feature as the guest poet for the December 2009 issue of 'Quill and Parchment'.

Special thanks go to Sharmagne for granting me permission to post a guest password to allow readers of my blog temporary access to the issue. My thanks, too, to Kay Weeks for conducting the interview. Please feel free to follow this link here.

You will then be asked to enter the following words as they appear below, which will allow you to read the journal for the next few days:

NAME: december

I came across Sharmagne and Quill and Parchment as a result of taking part in the 'Empty Shoes' project, under the editorial aegis of Patrick T. Randolph. 'Empty Shoes' is available on Amazon. Profits from the anthology (which includes my poem, 'Stranger') go to help those who are hungry and homeless.

An exuberant splurge of words Caroline. Not unlike the poet and the place.
After following the link, click on "This Issue" and then the link to the featured poet.
Well done Caroline.

congratulations Caroline, sadlythough it seems I'm too late to read it!

Caroline Gill said...

You shouldn't be, CGP - but who knows! I'll see if I can locate it... just going for a Scooby snack, though!

Caroline Gill said...

I tried - and I'm not sure, CGP, why the access is not working, but I will see if I can find out!

What a treat, thank you. Lovely poems - i do like 'where the wherry wove its way / through rippled rivers...' and ' beneath the haunting cry / of soaring swans' to name a couple of phrases. Alliteration can be tricky but i love it when it works. And the whole 'ink blends with sky' imagery... and lots of bits, actually.

I was surprised to see the recipes - do they do that in every issue?

My comment a few days ago seems to have been lost; oh well.

Thank you, Mand, very much for your feedback.

Yes, I think there are usually recipes, too!
