Well first off, I'll let you into a secret - I entered a writing comp here not long ago, with my first and only entry, and won it by the skin of my
teeth. So your thinking me a writer is...generous to say the least.
So I suppose I'd say don't ever let people tell you who you are or what you do. There will always be someone waiting to say 'there's no such
thing', but if that's how you feel it's best described then call it that. There's a lot of snobbery around writing and poetry, with people
desperate to pigeon hole and categorise things. Free verse is a good description, I think.
As long as it comes from the heart, it's original and packed with imagery and movement, I love it. It's like peeking inside someone's mind - not
something we're often invited to do, so it's a real privilege to read people's writing here.
