WiP :: June 2019

The Next Chapter

I am now a (perpetually struggling) independent writer. This includes non-fiction, critical essays, poetry and fiction works. I also shout at clouds, a lot.

Currently In Progress: Provocatrix is my WiP. Not saying anything else until we have an actual plot done and dusted. Right now, it’s for the downtime between poems. I’m also poking a few other things in a speculative fashion.

The two poetry collections from last year that were rejected in competition have now gone out for what will be the third time of asking. This year we’ve also submitted for two residencies. One’s been rejected, but I’m negotiating currently with the other. Again, Watch this Space.

The Short Story Collection I was working on for competitive submission has been split into individual lumps. Various things, in competition. You know how this goes.

In Episodic Fiction News:: EX/WHI really is honestly returning (again) via the Internet of Words website, I just need to deal with my panic over long form work in general. I reckon July, once I have this poetry project done with.

I am a winner of the Members’ Poems competition in the Winter 2018 issue of Poetry News, official publication of the Poetry Society. The theme of the contest was ‘The Abstract Space’, inspired by the poetry of W.S. Graham and judged by Rachael Boast.

The poem that won, The Beast in Cyberspace, can be read on the Poetry Society’s website. I’ll also be performing this piece live at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden on February 8th.

Other poetry will appear on @MoveablePress or @InternetofWords via Twitter. Note my Twitter handle’s changed. Don’t trust whoever it is pretending to be @AlternativeChat. They’re lying.

The Warcraft Blog has been altered to cover my 40 year relationship with Computer Gaming in all its forms and can be found here.
