Hi, I'm Linda. The host of the Poetry Ponderings Podcast.

Thank you so much for being here.

I am excited to collaborate with writers around the globe in order to highlight their creativity and passion for poetry, prose, and verse.

The intention of the podcast is to provide a platform for published and unpublished writers in which interpretation, inspiration, and imagination can flourish. The pieces are vocalised by the writer and absorbed by the listeners in its raw, real and true form. The poem itself is left alone, rather than undergoing extensive analysis paralysis (there are plenty of other forums on the internet for that!). In my opinion, poetry has heavy stigmas attached and I aim to assist in unifying ourselves with our own creativity and flow.

Please join me on this journey and I do hope you thoroughly enjoy listening as much as I do.

Love Linda xx
