Profile Information

Born the year Kennedy was shot, Trevor celebrated his 38th Birthday the day the Twin Towers were hit. His first collection of poems LOVE, DEATH and THE WAR on TERROR was published 2009 with his new collection KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON published in 2012.  He has the edited two anthologies of poetry garnered from new media, social and professional networking, THE POETIC BOND and THE POETIC BOND II, and manages the LinkedIN Group “POETRY, REVIEW and DISCUSS”.    Trevor is a Drama graduate from Royal Holloway with ten plays professionally produced and a collection of one act plays FOUR TRUTHS.  The above are all available on amazon and elsewhere.  He is currently putting together THE POETIC BOND III, and accepting submissions until 30 June 2013.  He recently performed at RAW POETRY in London.

For me, it’s that exciting time again, with the call for Submissions for THE POETIC BOND III having begun and the deadline of 30 June 2013 coming ever closer.  After the success of the first two anthologies, THE POETIC BOND is expanding, taking on a greater volume of poetry, and marketing to an ever increasing pool of interest.  As before, I am joined by a panel of anonymous readers who will write reports on the submissions and make their recommendation back to me as editor.  I will then seek to group together the selected work on the basis of congruent themes and the emergent zeitgeist as a whole.    With no specific brief, it is always a challenge to divine the themes and develop the style of the anthology. The purpose in putting together the anthology is to harness poetry through social media and to engage actively in sharing poetry with other poets and bringing poetry to general public.

The resulting volume will be a portfolio of work from a representative group of poets which will not only illuminate, educate, and entertain, but also will show how poetry, and in fact all Art, reveals and shares our humanity. More work this year, with all poets who submit being entitled to a reader’s report, but the joy is to read, experience, and create a unique and contemporary anthology which. I believe, can be part of the growing virtual library of world literature. Guidelines and submission details can be found at http://www.thepoeticbond.com/PB2013S.htm
