I love swimming. Outdoors, mostly, though I spend most of the year swimming indoors. And I love writing. Needless to say, it’s hard to keep the two apart. Cue my delight when I received a note from the incredible Tanya Shadrick, the 2016 writer-in-residence for Pells Pool , the oldest outdoor freshwater public pool in the U.K. (It has been open every summer for the last 155 years!!), accepting my submission Lake Ontario for inclusion in Watermarks: New writing by Lido Lovers and Wild Swimmers.
In May 2017 The Frogmore Press and Pells Pool in Lewes are putting out this anthology of exceptional new prose and poetry to celebrate the life aquatic, including the work of 50 fine poets and prose-writers exploring the world’s lakes, lidos, rivers and oceans.
I can’t wait for May!
