As a side project to give me some practice in editorial skills, I am sorting through my late grandmother’s poetry with a view to publishing a selection of the best poems.
There are a lot of poems to go through — a hefty folder’s worth — but it is an interesting task. Some poems are poignant, some are short and witty, but they are all good demonstrations of what the English language can do.
I started this project today, and have already found four or five poems on loose pages to go into the ‘publish’ pile. I also found an exercise book with more poems, the examination of which will be tomorrow’s task. I look forward to it. ^_^
