My forthcoming pamphlet has a title

After some time working with my publisher, and many brain storming, my debut poetry pamphlet forthcoming from V. Press has now got a title.

When I entered it to their poetry pamphlet competition in 2016, I didn't have a single clue on what I would call it; some of my writer friends gave me tips on thinking of a title i.e. find  a word I used in the  pamphlet which seems to sum up the theme, or a memorable phrase/sentence in one of my poems. Initially I picked a word from my pamphlet which I felt also summed up the metaphorical theme of my pamphlet.. but later on, both my editor and I thought the title was not strong enough. So, another word was picked and those two words are joined  with "&". In the end, we went  for "Rice & Rain".

With this title, can you guess what are the incorporating themes of my poetry pamphlet? Let me know in the comment section.

My debut poetry pamphlet

I have previously mentioned that I will have my debut poetry pamphlet published this year by V. Press. Aside from writing poems for my Jerwood/Arvon mentorship, I have also been editing the manuscript for V. Press. Cups of tea after cups of tea - that's my fuel nowadays. I am so delighted that finally, I submitted my revised manuscript to V. Press yesterday and am now waiting for its finalisation.

Once I receive a thumbs up from the editor and sign the contract, I will then reveal the title of my pamphlet.

I'm so excited and I can't wait to share it with you!

I'm a Jerwood Arvon mentee

I'm so happy to announce that I am now a Jerwood Arvon mentee and will be working with the fabulous Pascale Petit for a year.

I will be working on developing my craft in poetry. On w/c March 13, I got to meet my fellow mentees and other mentors (from playwriting and fiction) during our masterclass week in Totleigh Barton.

We cooked, we hiked, drank wine and beer, shared our work, and of course, we wrote.

I'm so excited to level up my writing and I will share my experience on this blog to keep you updated :-)
