Adventures Into Poetry

My author bio is due an update. We all need one, and we all want to come across as accomplished and witty, as well as to kindle interest in our books.

For many years, this is how my Author bio has started off :

Margaret K Johnson began writing after finishing at Art College to support her career as an artist. Writing quickly replaced painting as her major passion, and these days her canvasses lay neglected in her studio.

It's true, all of it, by the way. I had the crazy idea to write a best-selling novel to support my art career. Ha! Ha, ha, ha, ha....

However, just lately, I've been rediscovering my creativity. All of it, not just one small segment of it. I've been making artwork again. And I just started a poetry evening class. I haven't written poems since my angst-ridden teens, but poetry has just been calling me lately. So I've answered it's call, and I'm taking its hand and seeing where we end up.

I haven't yet admitted to the group that one of my favourite poems - for the pure comedy of it - appeared in an episode of Hancocks' Half Hour - The Poetry Society. Here it is in its full glory:



If you fancy a laugh, here's an extract from the episode.

So, if you're very lucky, I might share some of the poems I write while I'm on the class with you. Wink, wink.

Bye for now, I'm off to update my Author Bio!
