‘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 was the Featured Poet in Caught in the Net, November 2019, to read it click here.

One of my poems was recently the Featured Poem in Poetry in Public, to read it click here.

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