May Snakeskin: BREATHE

March 3, 2021

Rosie Miles will be the guest editor of the May issue. She explains:

Topic for May 2021 Snakeskin: BREATHE

Guest edited by Rosie Miles

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

I can’t breathe!”

Allow yourself to breathe. Let the wine breathe. Take time to breathe. Breathe a sigh of relief.

Who has breathed their last? Who can barely breathe? Who is still struggling to breathe?

What is it like to breathe again? What (new) spirit breathes among us?

Breathe energy, breathe fear, breathe courage, breathe air, breathe hope, breathe peace, breathe deeply, breathe freely.

What are you/we breathing new life into?

Breathe it all in.

Please respond to the theme as imaginatively and expansively and arrestingly as only poets can!

  1. Send up to four poems to Rosie Miles (info@rosiemilespoet.com) in one single word.docx or pdf attachment.
  2. Please start each poem on a new page.
  3. Your document should be named ‘BREATHE_Yourname’.
  4. Likewise please put ‘BREATHE Yourname’ in the Subject Line of your email.
  5. A brief “Hello”/introductory note in your email is welcome.
  6. Deadline Monday 5th April 2021.
  7. Poets whose poems are being included in the May 2021 edition of Snakeskin will be notified at the end of the month.

Another Snakeskin Zoom meeting

March 3, 2021

The January meeting was most enjoyable, and there will be a new one on Thursday March 18th, at 7.00 p.m. (London time).

Six or seven Snakeskin poets will be reading from their work, so that we can all put faces and voices to the names we see on our screens.

I have sent an email to my list of attendees from the previous meeting. The list may not be complete, though, and maybe others would like to attend. If you have not received an email, and would like to join in, please send a note to simmersgeorge@yahoo.co.uk.
