my poem Albatross has been published in Poets in the Spotlight on shelves at end of month
I have just recently heard that my acrostic Dar-es-Salaam Harbour is a finalist in the National poetry of Anthology plus they liked The Lovers enough to want to publish it too Great days
The National Poetry Anthology 2014 is now available on book shelves If you would like the ISBN e-mail me

I apologise to all of you as I am unable to answer comments or even read them properly through e-mail links. I can read via inbox but as soon as I click on a poem I am carted off to system error, Is anyone else also experiencing this? I have twice now reported it with no reply

    Hi Shadow! Are you viewing the site from your phone or PC/Mac? Also, what browser are you using to view the site? Depending on what you're using, it could be a "cookie" issue, where you may need to clear that "cookie" cache and start fresh. But, let me know and I'll see if there's something I might be able to do. I know another poet friend of mine had a similar issue, and she was using her phone. Either comment on here or Soupmail me. =)
