Thanks to everyone who has been sending in their poems for the monthly themed Online Celebrating Poetry pages published on the council website – a good way to get your work known by Bournemouth residents and beyond. It would be great now to expand this by adding extra web pages to showcase information about you! – the poets themselves.

On National Poetry Day I launched a new project called Poetry Profile Pages. Each ‘Poet Profile Page’ will feature a short biog. , author photo and links to poems, plus hyperlinks to websites/FB pages/Soundcloud etc. Poets known for their written work, spoken word and performance all welcome.

If you’d like to be showcased here,¬†please email me the following at jamesmanlow@hotmail.com

  • Short biog. (2oo word max)
  • author photo
  • and links to any poems, websites, social media pages etc. that you would like to be included.
    If you have books or sound recordings for sale, it is fine to include links to these too.

In order to get the project rolling, pages will be published in order of the material that arrives. There will be a house style and everyone will get the same amount of exposure and space on the pages. If the designers require anything else I will let you know.

Meanwhile, I look forward to receiving your material. The council pages are viewed regularly not just by Bournemouth residents but by tourists and those visiting the town from elsewhere in the UK and from around the world too. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work.
