pale fanfare

Yesterday’s poetry including the words

The silent fanfare of the moon
scatters the clouds.

so let’s start today with a pale fanfare of daffodil trumpets.

I guess even such a pastel flourish should be heralding something, so I’ll use them to announce my latest book.

As Poetry Coordinator for the SWWJ, one of my duties is to write a column for the Society’s quarterly in-house magazine, The Woman Writer.

In the column, I’ve written about a number of topics – perspective, sound, form, narrators… – and I’ve now revisited the pieces and gathered them together into a short book: A Poet’s Dozen.

"A poet's dozen" collection of short essays by Gwyneth Box
It’s available from Amazon and from the iBookstore, and will soon be available as a paperback. But if you’ve read this far and would like a free copy of the ePub version, drop me an email and I’ll send you one.

As I seldom use my real name here on the blog, even those who’ve been reading and following for a while may be unaware of who I am and the various writing projects I’m involved in. This is probably a good moment, then, to add a link to my website, where you’ll find a brief bio and info about other books etc.
