As you can probably tell by now, I try not to take life or myself too seriously, which is reflected in my writing (as is my love of the hyphen). In fact, you might say, I’m a bit like Peter Pan. I can’t fly and I don’t hang around with faeries, or spend a worrying amount of time with small children – it’s just that in some ways, I’ve never really grown-up.
I’ve been reading and writing poetry since childhood. I have a particular penchant for rhyming forms – especially light verse, limericks and parody. Though, I’m not yet the badass MoPo I aspire to be. If I’m honest, my own output is of varying quality and I’m not exactly prolific either. So, that’s why I decided to publish books containing others’ works in preference to my own.
TAPP is an acronym of The Amorphous Poetry Project – which is the highly imaginative name I came up with for this website/blog. [I give an account of how I came up with the name at the end of the first published TAPP anthology – All Said & Done. Available now from all good book retailers whilst stocks last – nudge, nudge…] Basically, it does what it says on the tin – it’s my project about poetry and it’s evolving constantly. Plus I really like the word Amorphous and I have a fetish for plumbing...
In case you hadn’t noticed, or you were perplexed in any way by the website banner/logo. It’s a tap (faucet) full of cheerful people, which is producing a book instead of water – I know pure genius and all my own work.
Please feel free to peruse the site, submit some poetry, make a comment, like a post, perhaps even share it with friends, colleagues, loved ones or your social worker.
