Chichester Poetry

A quick mention that in a week of two further poetry submission rejections, (all par for the course if you read my post last week), I have another poem appearing on the Chichester Poetry open mic page this month.

It’s a poem that I recorded for an online festival last year, which I have since reworked – and may carry on doing so in the future – is a poem ever finished?

I think Paul Valery was spot on with his well known, (at least to many poets), “A poem is never finished, only abandoned” quote.

Are the best poems the ones you complete? Or are they the actually the worst?

Food for thought for a future post perhaps. Anyway, the link;


Lots of excellent other poems to read there – whether completed or abandoned. Only the poets themselves will know!
