Her wings of glass

Her wings of glass is a fabulous new anthology published by Second Light Network,  containing ‘ambitious poems by contemporary women poets’. It features  237 ‘highly individual, complex, allusive poems by 134 women poets’.

My contributor’s copy arrived wrapped in lovely blue and yellow paper like a Christmas present. I am very proud indeed to be included and I’d like to thank the editors, Myra Schneider, Penelope Shuttle and Dilys Wood very much for their incredible hard work and for including two of my poems from my collection, A Handful of Water,  (Cinnamon Press, 2013).

    Congratulations Becky!! It’s great that your work is represented . And I enlarged the photo of your page… and I can see which of your two poems are there (since I am a proud owner of your “Handful of Water” 🙂

    I just joined Second Light Network a few months ago. I must get to it and get my Poet Page set up!! I entered the annual competition competition when I joined but must seem how else I can participate. Seems like a friendly, well-organized and active organization.

  3. Hope you have fun with it and thanks v much for your support.
