‘Poetry is that
which arrives at the intellect
by way of the heart.’
R S Thomas

Established in May 2018, Nine Muses Poetry aims to feature all forms of poetry by new, emerging and established poets, showcasing the best in contemporary poetry. It is managed and edited by Annest Gwilym, poet and occasional short story writer.

I live in North West Wales, in the UK. If I like a poem, I will publish it, irrespective of background or publishing history of the author.

A lover of literature since childhood, my writing has been published quite widely in literary journals and anthologies, both online and in print. I have both won and been placed in writing competitions in recent years.

My second book of poetry, and first full collection – What the Owl Taught Me – is now available. For more details click here.

One of the other things I like to do when I’m not editing or writing is making jewellery. I now have a shop open on Etsy.com called NineMusesJewellery.
