Gap Filler Poetry

Hello. I haven't posted in a long time because I've written 40 000 words this year, not counting reviews and poems. The idea kind of scares me. But I just got an email from my friend Micah, who is organising this really cool event in earthquaked Christchurch, called Gap Filler, where there are poetry readings and all kinds of awesome stuff in the vacant spaces left by quake damage. More details here. If it all goes well, I'll hopefully take part when I'm down for xmas-new years times.

All the best with that, ROss - it sounds like an excellent event to be part of.

40,000 words!? You doing Nano?

Ross Brighton said...

No, my BA (hons).
First semester, 4 5000 word papers, 2nd, 2 5k and a 10 000 word dissertation.
Now it's over I don't know what to do with myself. But I got a Summer Research Scholarship, so I'm doing that from next week, and Masters in Creative Writing next year, so I'll be keeping busy. This week I'll be staying in bed most of the time though I think :)

I really grieved when I graduated my BA - but I moved to NZ and have been skint ever since so no chance of further study yet!

You deserve a recharge!
