Our mini-publishing project to produce an anthology of poems about birds later this year has got off to a flying start!

We were very pleased to receive the astonishing total of 72 poems and the overall standard is very high. We had asked Tim Cunningham, our editor, to choose 30 poems to anthologise but we hadn’t foreseen such a brilliant response. We’ve now asked him to stretch it to 35 poems.

He should be getting his selection back to us by the beginning of June. We will then put the names of poets and the poem titles on the Poetrywivenhoe website and Mosaic website and we will also send out the result on mailing lists. If your name is NOT on the selection list then I’m afraid you haven’t been successful this time.

We are hoping this anthology will be the first in a series of small publications showcasing the work of our local poets so, if your poem isn’t included in this anthology, keep trying!

We aim to run another poetry workshop in the autumn and these do provide ways of honing your writing skills and receiving feedback on your poems so do watch out for the next one of these.

Thank you all very much for your support in this initiative and we, like you, look forward to reading Tim’s selection.
