This issue contains a myriad of poetry and thought provoking short stories by Guernsey writers and poets. Pippa McCathie has provided some valuable advice for writers by providing ten top tips for editing your work. Peter Lane shares his background with us and reveals the methodology he uses to write his humorous limericks.
We also hear from the writing groups that meet regularly to exercise their writing minds and provide each other with support and encouragement, The Guernsey Writers’ Group and the Poets in Motion.
The magazine is available from The Press Shop, Lexicon, Quayside, St Peter’s Post Office, Forest Stores, Co-Op St Martins, Co-Op Market Street, Bookshop in Alderney or Little Green Island at Copper Craft for £3.50.
Also, Island Ink’s new 2012 poetry calendar is now available. Each page has a poem written by a local person describing that particular month in Guernsey. The photographer Allister Clark has cleverly manipulated local shots digitally, to create an image perfectly depicting the wording of each poem. This calendar is far from the usual Guernsey scenic calendars and really illustrates the poetic talent on the island.
The calendar can be purchased from The Press Shop, St Peters Post Office, Freesia Centre, Quayside, Ego Motifs at Oatlands and Little Green Island at Copper Craft or by emailing [email protected] for £9.99.
