Dear Deborah, I found your information about the Poetry Ambulance in My Weekly this week. I have written many poems and have been encouraged to do them with my GP Dr Opher from May Lane Surgery Dursley. Back in 2003 we had a poet Dr Emily Wills (wife of another GP Dr Kenny in our surgery). I did a one to one poetry. We al got together and published our first book Doorways and more got published. I have also had my poetry published with United Press Limited in London. It would be lovely to meet you.
Hello Sally…thanks so much for your message! It sounds like you have a wonderful GP practice! Lucky you! And well done on the publications!
It would be great to meet you…I’m already working out next year’s dates…not sure that I’ve got any plans to get to Gloucestershire though….keep an eye on the appointments page on here for tour dates! Best wishes, Deb
Dear Deborah..hello from the US. I came across an article on you in the British edition of Country Living magazine not long ago. What a glorious thing you are doing as The Emergency Poet. The whole concept is appealing on so many levels and it’s clear your patients find your prescriptions uplifting. Bravo! I am sharing the BBC magazine piece on you through two projects I am involved with on Facebook. One is a poetry page called Good Earth Farmed, which is hosted by my writing partner in Washington state and me, featuring our own works and and an open invitation to all to share their writings. The other is Fuego Diablo, an arts and music studio that my husband and I run out of our home. You are certainly inspiring me to dream up a way to bring my poetry, and the works of others, out to the masses in a way that is fun and presented on a personal level. I think your example will inspire others as well. Best wishes on your future consultations. Cheers! wren pearson pownal, maine
Hello Wren! Thank you so much for taking the trouble to get in touch and for your kind words! I love the sound of what you are doing too! Hope our paths might cross some day! Deb x
