I have had one of my periodic bursts of inspiration and have decided to start blogging again. I had a mentoring session with Melanie Abrahams on Friday and she gave me so many ideas and so much energy for poetry, and I feel like I need to make sure I have a solid way of actually acting on them. So, I’m going to (try and) use this blog to keep track of my progress with those ideas, as a way of setting goals, celebrating my achievements and interacting with other artists.
This year I want to:
- make contact and engage with 10 poets/performers/artists and interview them about their own experiences
- see and review 5 poetry/theatre shows to inspire my own
- make a press pack I’m happy with
- enter 3 competitions
- perform somewhere new
So yeah. Wish me luck. Fingers crossed I’ll keep you updated.
