Maggie Holmes writing

 

Maggie HolmesMaggie Holmes,
the writer


Writing has been an important part of my life since my twenties when I thought that I might be a writer.. It got lost in the business of life and re-emerged again when I moved to the Midlands in 1980.

There was an upsurge of poetry writing which had blossomed when I was at teacher training college and found itself as a creative replacement for my non existent visual art work.

Change in my life meant that poetry was an important outlet for my emotions and combined with my teaching experience and my deep interest in the creative process I was able to encourage others to write.
