The Blue Hour magazine – plus me

I have a poem appearing in The Blue Hour magazine! Check it out here

I don’t generally think of myself as a poet (or an artist for that matter) but I have enjoyed writing a few of them, including this one which I wrote as a response poem to James Fenton‘s poem Wind. I hope you’ll take a look and let me know what you think.

You can read Fenton’s poem here:

I must admit, I think it must be the best to have a book of your own poetry. Something to take off the shelf and idle over in a weak moment, even if no-one else got to read it. Just to please yourself. Isn’t it funny how ideas can grab you sometimes?

And now I’m feeling so dreamy and creative all at once, here’s a little something from my old drawing pad.

Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...

  1. Well-crafted poem and well-rounded beginning and ending with the wind. You certainly should try your hand at writing more poetry and use your drawings to illustrate your book of poetry.


  2. Hi Jill! I commented on this poem over at the Blue Hour, but without realizing it was written by you, as I didn’t recognise the surname. Great poem, it really struck me!


    1. Oh no! The goats have been at it again? Well I guess they’re notorious for eating anything and everything (unless that’s a myth?!). Maybe I’ll draw your errant goats next time 😉
