Hello there! Welcome to my new blog page! For the last five years I've published my poems on my website at http://www.newporttownpoet.nav.to , but Fortunecity have migrated (rather in the manner of wintering starlings, one imagines) and the free software I've been using to write my site no longer publishes to the web.
This is a bit of a git!
But I've decided to adopt a new blogger attitude, and publish my new work here instead. I've just got broadband, and it's all a lot easier than before.
My old site will remain where it is, sealed in electronic aspic, and you can visit it if you want to, but all my new stuff will be here.
I'm also going to post the poems that I'd grouped under the heading of "Adventures in Hack Poetry" here as well. These are poems that were written after I finished as Town Poet.
Please feel free to comment - I've got a thick skin! If I'd listened to what was written in the local paper about me in 1997, I wouldn't be writing now.
