Away from home…
by Pedalling Poetry
‘Today I sat in the window in the Project Cafe and wrote. Or more accurately, pulled together some notes I’d written on a previous visit, and edited them into a poem. The poem might change yet. I tend to edit and edit. But it is a beginning. Sitting in the cafe gave me the momentum I needed to keep writing in between staring into space and sipping delicious coffee. And the talk around me forced me to focus on what I was writing and hold the poem to its shape. It’s a beginning. And appropriately, for a beginning poem, the poem is about an egg. A dragon egg.’
So wrote our latest writer-in-residence Liz Basset as she began her residency. The dragon egg has hatched into a whole pamphlet, now available on the tell it slant shelves!
