Over the last two and a half years I've written 20 sonnets inspired by insects.
Just recently I sent a couple to Dr Dmitri Logunov at Manchester Museum and he asked me to contribute to his blog - here.
One of them, Gerris Lacustris inspired by the Common Pond Skater also won second place in the Cheshire Literature Prize. I'll not publish it here as they are publishing it in their anthology. If you'd like to see it let me know.
Another two are in a forthcoming edition of Manhattan Review. Again if you'd like to see them let me know.
