Unashamed plug for a new writer...

I may not have been writing much of late, but it seems my daughter has. And, if I say so myself, her poetic pen is as sharp as a razor. Her submission was accepted for Issue 15 of Pushing Out the Boat - which amongst other things has been described as the best regional literary magazine in Scotland and a thrilling place to be published alongside writers and artists from around the world. She even gets a mention in the foreword:
'The balladeer tradition has a future when a 16-year-old poet has the panache to write: ‘She might have shoved the fruit of knowledge so far down his throat he choked’.
Her poem is called 'do not trust a man who calls himself objective'. It's a real zinger but if you want to read it you'll have to buy a copy of the magazine, which is a collectors item in itself - full of fantastic writing and brilliant artwork. You'll find it here - www.pushingouttheboat.co.uk.
