Listening to Me, and other Links

Plains FM where I read my poetry on air a couple of weeks ago is now streaming live. They have poetry on the first Saturday morning of each month.
I was exploring their website and found they have a podcast of my interview which you can listen to here. Just scroll down till you find a poet named Catherine on June 18th (and yes I am revealing my last name, should you care to look).

The Women on Air poetry webpage is here and again if you scroll down a little you can see one of the poems I read, and a photo of me - this is a bit old, they didn't ask me for one so they must have dragged it up from the archives somewhere. That's OK, it makes me look a little younger!

Helen Lowe who interviewed me has a book scheduled for publication in the US in September. For fantasy lovers, here are her websites:
About the book, Thornspell
and about the author Helen Lowe

Boy, you're some kind of whiz-kid in the poetry world.

(I am here from Michele's place.)

It was wonderful to hear your poems read aloud in your own voice. They are each like little songs, the internal music carried by lilting of your intonation.

It looks good!

Michele sent me here.

Catherine I loved hearing your voice and what a great interview you gave - you were completely yourself and relaxed and your considered replies made for an interesting listening experience. Hearing you read your superb poetry was a treat. I am cetain that you will have a collection published at some stage. That excellent poetry deserves to be in book form.
Like you, I need to find more gaps in my working-full-time life (plus the busy family life that trundles on its merry way and takes you with it) to concentrate on the poetry-making. I find your idea of patterns and seeing patchwork a little like poetry and vice versa, interesting. I think that idea linked with your strong sense of history - and your ability to bring it to life and make it personal - and love of Canterbury and Christchurch, you already have a cohesive theme for that first collection.
Can't wait to read it.
