Clandestine Writer says Hi

Post by ClandestineWriter » Tue Mar 26, 2019 12:38 pm

Greetings and felicitations. 

My name is April.  I have written poetry for umpteen tens of years.  I quit listening to the people who live in my head from my past who told me as a kid that people like me don't write, if they write they don't publish and if they do publish they never ever get paid.  I quit listening when I got my first geek book published.  I quit hiding my poetry several years later.  Now, I write.  I write for me.  I write because the words in my brain will not be silenced unless I do.

Welcome April,

We are pleased to have you here. Congratulations on being published. Do you have a link to your book(s)?

I look forward to seeing the poems you choose to post, and getting your view on poetry. As you probably know, we are a small site, but have some good writers. We try to exchange honest views of the poems posted while maintaining some collegiality.

I hope you like here and speak up if there is anything to help you settle in.

Cheers.

 'I write because the words in my brain will not be silenced unless I do.' 

The best reason of all.

I've been writing ever since I realised I could.  Storytelling since I started talking.  Poetry however comes and goes  ;-)

April --

As you may know, today is the first day of National Poetry Month. Let me call your attention to the Tangled Branch celebration--

National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

30 poems in 30 days (or however many you want). Click the link, it is pretty self-explanatory. Let me or Tom know if you have questions.

Cheers. And look forward to seeing your writing.

Hi April!

Welcome to the fold and CONGRATULATIONS!  Good for you. I found the naysayers in my life played into the stubborn part of me. Now I'm my own worst critic.


It's great to see you here. I look forward to geeking out on your work.  :)
