Guest Blog Post – Featuring Eric Clarke

For a second week, Esther Chilton has kindly had me as a guest on her blog – this poem (quite long for me) sums up where my short poems come from…


I hope you’ve had a good week. It’s now time for my guest post. If you’d like to feature as a guest on my blog, please get in touch. I’m looking for stories and non-fiction pieces of up to 1500 words and poems of up to 40 lines. If you can also send me a photo and a little bit about yourself too, that would be great. Please send them to

Last week, my guest writer was Eric Clarke, with his poem England – Isolated Views. To read it, click here. And here’s another one from him for you to enjoy:

      1. It’s a great piece, and Sorts were great too. I didn’t want to tell you before I was ready for the review, but couldn’t resist now. It’s one of the first things I ll do when I am back in Athens. I hope Amazon will let me leave a review. I noticed you couldn’t do it if you hadn’t spent a certain amount on books already.

          1. Your faith in my reviewing abilities honours me, but I am afraid I won’t be very good at it. I always find it hard to sum up a literary work. I have done it very few times, and in some cases I was following guidelines. Anyway, I will try my best. Have a great evening 🙂
