Welcome to my poetry blog.

When I retired to Brighton ten years ago I attended a creative writing course at Sussex University tutored by John McCullough, attended courses at The Poetry School and at Arvon.

I had poems published in Compact, three in Writing Magazine and others in local anthologies.  I was shortlisted in the Bridport Prize in 2014 and won a competition Judged by  New Writing South.  Some of my poems are autobiographical and most are written in free verse.

In 2015, 2016 and 2017 I was included in The Poetry School’s Mixed Border programme as a poet in residence. This was  as part of London’s Open Squares Weekend, my first year was in Postman’s Park and this year in Earls Court Square.

My first collection was called ‘Don’t Throw Away the Daisies’. Six years later I published ‘The Puppeteers Daughter’ both collections are available at City Books in Hove, at the Open Art Cafe in Rottingdean and online.

I have read my poems on by invitation at the Troubadour Coffee House for their theme nights. The Talking Peace Festival in London, at various Poetry School events, at Lumen in London and at Pighog in Brighton,

My first blog was established seven years ago. It is a mixture of pictures, articles, news of events, homespun philosophy and hardly surprising several poems not published anywhere else. annperrin.wordpress.com
