Hello again, friends, readers, fellow poets and enthusiasts!
Today I wanted to share a bit of a poetry milestone–I have officially passed the halfway point on my chapbook manuscript!
It has been awhile since I last wrote here and as I previously mentioned, my collection is the prime reason why. But as I am so happy with the progress I am making and the shaping up of this poetic trip I’m taking, I couldn’t help but share it here, for anyone who is interested.
I hope to have the first drafts and initial writing process done by this time next month and the editing/revising and preparation for publication tackled by the end of the year.
At this stage, the working title of the collection is Birdland (likely to change) and is currently comprised of 17 poems. The theme of the collection loosely revolves around different birds, their personalities and cultural mythology, woven together into a story of personal exploration. Here is a current list of pieces:
1. Untitled Intro Poem
17. Untitled End Poem
Also as I had mentioned before, once I have completed and published the collection, I would be more than happy to share the finished product with anyone who would like to read it! Presently, I plan on printing physical copies (to keep with the chapbook aesthetic) but an ebook format may also be something I could consider. I will be sure to post details on the publication and sharing of the collection when they are available.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be sure to check in when I’ve made some more progress and hopefully, I’ll soon get back to posting original pieces here! Cheers!
