ABOUT

‘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 widely in literary journals and anthologies, both online and in print.

I was recently published here.

I was also included in this free-to-download e-book / anthology Quixotic travellers.

My first pamphlet of poetry – Surfacing – was published by Lapwing Poetry in 2018 (for further details, see SURFACING page).
