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The intention of the podcast is to provide a platform for published and unpublished writers in which interpretation, inspiration, and imagination can flourish.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

Another episode and yet another amazing guest!
Claire is currently living in London, working as an editor for a company that publishes children's non fiction. She is leaving at the end of November... to the great unknown. A big decision but one that her heart has been calling out for in a way that can not be ignored. Deciding she is not made for a ruthless, corporate life, yet recognising the lessons learned have been invaluable.
We chat about taking leaps of faith, the net that the universe casts, delving into how creative memories present and the influence of literature for children today.

I encourage you to explore Claires work further on her blog:

Thanks as always for listening. Don't forget to join the FB book for exclusive access to the Dorothy Baird poem featured in the episode today.
