Last month I reviewed Ken W Simpson’s poetry collection, Patterns of Perception on my blog. This month my review has been published in the March issue of Ashvamegh magazine. Ken has had much success with his new collection and I hope his promotion work continues to bring his poetry to a wider audience all over the world.
During the past month I have contributed to editing and selecting poems for publication in Ashvamegh. Although I have previously edited anthologies of poetry by young people for publication, joining the editorial board of Ashvamegh has been a new experience in terms of reading and editing work by adults.
A person’s poetry, their bio and even their cover letter is their unique contribution to poetry, and to literature in general. It is a personal journey that has been adapted for an audience – ultimately you, as the reader. What they write speaks to everyone in a different way. In this sense, I feel privileged to be in a position to help share a poet’s work with a sea of unknown readers out there.
