Silly little desks

So the Christmas adverts haven’t gone unnoticed and I realise we are fast approaching the end of November, (I realise this as I haven’t started seasonal shopping yet)! It has been a rea…
I am so excited! There are many poets that I openly admire, but few that I worship like Paul F. Lenzi. When one reads Paul’s poetry, it is no small wonder his website (https://poesypluspolemics.com/) has over eleven thousand followers and has received more than a quarter of a million page views.
Paul is not only a gifted poet, but a kind and considerate advocate for many other writers. I am blessed to be among those he has actively encouraged and supported. People like Paul (and Polly Stretton) have made me a better poet and given me opportunities I would not have imagined possible. Heck, I write good poetry because I read GREAT poetry, you can read some by getting your hands on ‘Atlas of Clouds’ or any of the other superb collections from Paul F. Lenzi: https://www.amazon.com/Atlas-Clouds-Chapbook-Paul-Lenzi-ebook/dp/B01M6E60S5

Ben Parker, the reigning poet in residence at Worcester’s Swan Theatre (and former poet in residence at The Museum of Royal Worcester Porcelain) has recently had a collection of poetry published! I first met Ben at the beginning of the year, a gentleman in my eyes; and a gifted poet.
When I saw Mr Parker perform poetry from his collection ‘The Amazing Lost Man’ at a recent Worcestershire Litfest & Fringe Speakeasy, I had to get a copy. Signed, ‘To Baldy, with love’, I am chuffed to further bow my bookshelves with Ben’s offering.
Published by Eyewear Publishing, you can get your copy of ‘The Amazing Lost Man’ here:
