New Writing North

I have had an email this morning from Liv at New Writing North. She will try to mention Platinum Page in the next New Writing North newsletter, which will be out on the 5th March.

Great news!


  1. Great! let's hope it brings in some interesting and creative submissions...

  2. Hope so! It's exciting waiting to see what is going to happen - but very frustrating at the same time!

  3. Hi Vivienne

    looking forward to it

    Many thanks for stopping by and your kind words, they mean such a lot.

  5. Thanks :) Glad to see you back!


An inspired poem

Dear Vivienne
inspiration from your blog picture
A Camera’s Eye View

Looking into a picture, starting from top left
The crows nests in the tree tops, gray sky’s causing silhouettes.

Following down the left hand edge, bare branches topped with snow
Tree trunks for all of us to see, as black as any crow.

Houses nestled in the woodland, roofs and chimneys tall
The evergreen of the fir trees, masking most, but not them all.

Let the eye drop down the river bank, small bushes all aglow
Standing proudly in the ground, topped off with winter snow.

The shallow water still and silent, bed rocks sticking through
Dark reflections of the trees, and individual branches too.

Suddenly a burst of light, of sunshine and of blue
Reflected in the river Tyne, intended just for you.

Feel that inspiration, as you stare in fascination
I’m glad you took your camera, and captured this creation

Ray Johnson.
looking forward to the mag best wishes
