This feels like the night before Christmas! (That would be Christmas Eve) – tomorrow is my first day as a writer in role, working at The Hive with Ian MacLeod as an Assistant Writer. I have just read the emails from the first session in January and now I am EVEN MORE excited!
How will I ever sleep?
In addition to this, as I was raking through emails I came across one from the Arts Network. I will be displaying my poetry in a local library in March, very exciting.
Many local libraries are hosting Poetry On Loan events this next week, I know several poets who are involved in these events, I dream of such an opportunity one day, but for now am happy to let my poems speak for themselves.
Even a rejection email cannot dampen my spirits this evening! I have just spoken to IanMacLeod an award winning Novelist who happens to be the Lead Writer for the group I am about to start work with in the City this weekend. In the role of Assistant Writer.
Chatting to him made this new venture suddenly very real! I am now looking forward to Saturday even more than I was before, a few butterflies, but it will be creative and fun!
