This month’s poem, ‘The Stag’, by Frank McMahon, won second prize in the competition, ‘Voices for the Silent’, run by Indigo Dreams Publishing. It now features in their anthology of the same name.
Frank’s poem also appears in his second volume of poems, ‘A Different Land’, published by Palewell Press. The poem is a protest against the killing of wild animals for sport.
Frank says, ‘Poetry is thriving these days in the UK, partly due to all the local writing groups around the country.
I want to acknowledge all the help and inspiration given by the members of the Somewhere Else Writers Group.’
The group is now welcoming new members to join its weekly meetings on Wednesday afternoons at Somewhere Else Deli in Castle Street, Cirencester. Whether you already write, or have always wanted to, but would appreciate support and inspiration, contact us via our group website. Alternatively, just leave us a message at Somewhere Else at the top of Castle Street. Members write poetry, plays, fiction, and other forms of writing. Some are published and performed, but others prefer to explore their personal potential. If you want to get the most out of words, do get in touch.
