War of Voices – Mingled Voices 5

Woohoo! My first attempt at penning a poem was published last week by Proverse Publishing and Chinese University Press. Mingled Voices 5 is an anthology of poems on the theme of ‘Hunger’ by poets around the world that won or were shortlisted for the 2020 International Proverse Poetry Prize

The 2021 Proverse Poetry Prize is now open for entries. This year’s theme is ‘Shielding’. Submissions close June 30, 2021. The winners and finalists will be announced at Proverse‘s Autumn Reception, to be held at the Helena May Nov 2021. I’m not sure if I have another poem in me. I’m as surprised as you are that I had ONE poem in me and still reeling in shock that it found its way to being published. 🙏 

The book is well worth buying for first prize winner Anne Casey‘s Night Traps alone! All the featured poets are incredible and I can only put my inclusion in this anthology down to a fortuitous accident or a moment of drug or alcohol relapse on the part of the editors. Mingled Voices 5 is available to buy in paperback or as an ebook. It’s free to subscribers of Kindle Unlimited!
