My History

So basically I decided today, with given reason, that it would be a good idea to start my own blog, so here I am. However, I am not sure how to begin so I am just going to begin with the beginning, what my blog will be about and where it all started.

So as you may have read in my profile my dream is to be a professional poet, I would love to be paid for doing what I love most of all, which is obviously writing. I began writing when I was only eight, It may be younger but that is the oldest surviving pieces of my work so I am going to assume the age of eight was when my love of poetry really began to take off.

I won my first competition in year seven of my school years, making me the age of 11, I remember how shocked I was when I won a WHSmith voucher holding the value of £5.00 and my poem was published in a little yellow school paperback book! That must have been about the time when I began to feel the inspiration and began to send my poetry elsewhere...

I think it must have been in September 2006 when I was called for an interview with the Grimsby Telegraph - my local paper, I was interviewd over the phone, my photograph was taken and my poem published for all of the locals to enjoy. I was filled with so much pride.

Again, in 2009 I was re-interviews for another of my poems, again my photograph was taken but this time I recieved more interest, I found out that BBC Radio Humberside where trying to contact me for an interview as well as a local jeweler interested in my quotes.

Since then I have been writing. I do not believe I will ever stop. It is where my heart belongs, I have so far now had about ten poems published, two articles for Voxx Magazine as well as giving my opinion in Mizz Magazine as an Agony Aunt.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
