About Carys

I’ve been scribbling all my life but started writing poetry regularly about six years ago. I’m still learning my craft and expect to continue to learn for as long as I’m writing. I have cut my poetic teeth on critique groups, had a spell as a moderator on an American poetry website and also as an admin on the Facial Expression Poetry Circle. I’ve been involved with the dVerse Poets Pub, contributing an article to the Meeting the Bar: Critique and Craft feature and helping out on the critique team.

I’m fairly nocturnal, I often write until the wee small hours of the day and then get up early to go do the job that pays the bills.  I’m a Learning and Development Adviser with the local authority – I love my job but it’s my bread and butter – poetry is my oxygen, it allows me to breathe.   I write anywhere and everywhere; I once wrote a poem on a beach cave wall and had to go back the next day with a pen and paper to transcribe it.  These days I carry a notebook and pen.

    Some fine stuff here! I wonder whether you can help. I’m looking to connect with a poetry group in NE Pembs (Narberth + say 15 miles); trying to keep the momentum going having recently been on a great workshop oop north. Looking for something seriously stimulating, yet informal…if that makes sense:)
    Cheers
    Richard

  5. I am interested to find a poetry reading group in Pembs;and also some computer training for business.
    Kind regards

  6. Your poems are like little breathless nugets of dream-lyrics. I am blown away by how appealing and readable I find them, one of my favorite poets I’ve found on wordpress thus far (granted I’ve only been here a week).

    I adore your work and think you have a lot of inner beauty to share with the world!

  7. Quite the pleasure to have found you hear. 😉
