So my portfolio for Introduction to the Craft of Writing is handed in, and now that’s out the way it’s time to catch on the blogging and documentation.
The portfolio required 10-12 pieces of poetry, which is a lot more than I would normally come up with in a short space of time. The pressure was useful – I produced more pieces than I would have done otherwise, which I’ll mark down as a good thing, although the one’s I’m happiest with are still the ones that were produced at the start, while the pressure was still off. They’ve been up on my poetry blog since the start of the new year:

That’s not all I’ve been up to though, poetry-wise, there have been some cool gigs too – an awesome variety night hosted at Ashley’s by Lauren Stone, a Real Sesh session with Alexei and Ben, and Culture Lab Radio transmission 2.0 with a whole host of weird and wonderful people. Best of all, I went down to London to compete in the group portion of the Hammer and Tongue national poetry slam final, and we won! It was incredible. Check out this post for more info on that.
