Sweet Resolution

This month’s featured writer is Clare Roberts, whose passions include wild water, music and mountains. Formerly a journalist, Clare now studies poetry, alongside her work teaching piano and singing. Her poem, ‘Tar Barrels of Allendale’ available to read here is one of two published in ‘Voices,’ a brand-new anthology of writing by the students and alumni of the University of Gloucestershire.

Clare says: ‘To hear different voices, we must listen. As a keen singer, the theme of the anthology conjures the idea of different melodies creating harmony. There will sometimes be dissonance, but that can make the waiting more poignant, and the resolution sweeter.’

Clare also writes radio programmes for Corinium Radio under the banner of Somewhere Else Writers, exploring themes including Inner and Outer Space, and Playfulness, using literature and music.

‘Voices’ is available through the university bookshop. You can also read ‘Tar Barrels of Allendale’ by clicking on the ‘Poem of the Month’ logo.
