I hope you’re having a great Christmas everyone and a well-earned break.

In case you’ve got a few extra minutes reading time, I’d like to share my poem in Southword journal with you. I’m really delighted to have been selected by Thomas McCarthy for inclusion in this issue – it’s a brilliant journal and one of my particular favourites, so being included is like an early Christmas present.

Make sure you have a thorough look through – there are some brilliant writers featured. You won’t be disappointed.

My poem is called Book of Us. I hope you enjoy it.
