Validate Me Poetry Competition

On this National Poetry Day VALIDATE ME, my second poetry collection, is published and I couldn’t be more excited for you all to read it. It glimpses into a life lived online, constantly striving for validation and all the highs and lows that inevitably come alongside that.

To mark the occasion, I want to hear from you. I’d love to read your poems, so we’re launching a competition for your own work to be hosted on the HQ Stories blog! Judged by me, the poems can be in any form and about anything that’s important to you. I’ll be looking for creativity and beautiful language in the one winning poem.

So, let’s celebrate poetry and VALIDATE ME together.
