I’ve been looking forward to making this post – I’ve been writing poetry as one of the contributors for a book coming out this April – ‘In Living Memory 2020’ (note post photo is mine – not itself a part of the book).
The book is to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Liberation from Occupation.
My paternal great-grandparents in both Guernsey and Jersey were deported to Germany, and all my grandparents were in occupied Guernsey (my maternal grandmother Miriam Mahy being author of ‘There is an Occupation…’) which makes being part of this book very special.
I’ll be reading poetry and speaking for a few minutes at the book launch event (nerves jangling!) and there is an exhibition associated with the book (although I don’t know yet if poem’s I’ve written will appear in that).
Later this year, I shall be posting the poems on my blog at https://nickrowepoetry.rocks and on my social media accounts (Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook Page, Twitter).
I also want to thank my online followers on my blog and social media. It’s been really uplifting for me to have you liking and engaging with posts – and wonderful to have regulars.
Thank you 😊
