If facing the paper, your thought is 'I am an artist', you have no clue what to do. If the concepts of your function are, 'I am a shape maker, an entertainer, an expressive symbol collector'...then you have an explicit road map. Edgar Whitney
We're in the middle of poetry season here in Christchurch. Last night was superb, the guest readers satisfied my need to hear well crafted poetry read in the poet's own voices. The open mike readers were of high calibre with the likes of James Norcliffe, Bernadette Hall, Kerrin P Sharpe, Helen Lowe and new voices that were a treat to hear.
I'm at the lecturn next week with Sean Joyce and our star poet, Louise Wallace. Looking forward to it!
I made the drawing at the head of my poetry page whilst on holiday in the very beautiful Okains Bay, located on the Banks Peninsula, south island, New Zealand. I love to draw subjects that have rhythm and movement. This drawing is now in the United Kingdom, a gift to an artist friend. A poem celebrating this drawing can be found on The Semaphore Anthology
