I really love hearing poetry and stories read out loud and I also love to read at open mics. I feel it offers something completely different to the written version and brings it to life. I feel poetry is about life and I would like to try and use my writing to bring it alive a bit more and see how to make it relevant to more people. Feeling a little bit terrified, but also trusting this is the way forward, I have begun to record my poems. The first one is here. I think i need to invest a little time in sound editing, but hopefully this will work as a first attempt. Do let me know if you have any tips or suggestions on how to improve from this first attempt.
