Poetry and business or this poetry business

At a networking meeting earlier this year I met up with a business entrepreneur running her own marketing company.

Not unusual you might say.  This one came with added interest for me as a writer because she was taking a creative writing course at Nottingham Trent University and was about to finish a collection of poems about her life running a business.

At the meeting she asked if anyone might be interested in reviewing her collection when it was ready and I signed up for that. 

This week I received the collection.

Now I have to say that I don't writer poetry.  I did in the past, very bad poetry so gave it up.  So reviewing someone's poetry is a stretch for me.

But I'm thoroughly enjoying the task.  As you might expect of an effective entrepreneur, she's approached presenting the collection in an original way like a diary of her life. 

Which makes the poems related to the incidents that she deals with.


I don't at the moment have permission to tell you more but she will be writing a blog for me when the collection is finished and in final format.

Promises to be an interesting read from her about how becoming a writer has affected how she views the creative people in her organisation.
