In 2010, Jane – our resident poet – took part in a competition held by The Times to write a love poem for Valentine’s Day. Her entry, Fragments of Love, was among those chosen for publication in the newspaper. Quite an achievement.
In the spring of 2015 ninevoices held its own short story competition to raise funds for Jane’s chosen charity PMRGCAuk, which supports sufferers of linked rheumatic conditions that cause severe pain and can lead to sight loss. Few people have heard of either the condition or the charity, so it is greatly in need of funds and we were delighted to be able to send them a cheque for £500 raised by our efforts.
Ninevoices subsequently published a ‘slender tome’ of ten of Jane’s thought-provoking poems, copies of which were also sold in aid of this ‘Cinderella’ charity.
We are currently offering copies of this attractively illustrated booklet for sale at £5 each, to include postage and packing (UK only, we’re afraid). Payment can be made by PayPal (our preferred option) or by sending a sterling cheque, made out to ninevoices, to: Poetry Book Administrator, 53 The Boundary, Langton Green, Kent, TN3 OYA. We would also need your address details (which we won’t keep) sent either to the address above or to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of us have a friend or relative for whom it’s difficult to find a modest Christmas present that’s a bit different. Why not give them Fragments of Love and Other Poems to read while they’re digesting their Christmas pud? You will also be donating in the region of £4 per poetry booklet to an exceedingly worthy cause.
