I’m delighted to share that my poem My Value has been published in the beautiful anthology, Wilderness of Soul, compiled by writer Sarah Reichert. My Value explores the source of personal value and how it must move beyond the temporary or fickle into something more meaningful.
Although I have cut back on submitting work to places, sometimes I come across an opportunity I can’t resist and this anthology was one. It was the theme that drew me in. Poets were asked to submit work which incorporated themes of nature, growth, transformation, self-awareness and personal resilience. My favourite part is that a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to SummitStone Health Partners, an organisation providing help for those mental health and addiction issues. I couldn’t be prouder!

Whether or not you purchase this book, I hope you take a moment today to think about where you get your value from. I will be the first to admit, that sometimes mine is from things that at the end of the day mean nothing at all.
