Watch the Poetry Reading: PARIS – THE ATROCITY 13th November 2015:
Get to know poet Jane Gill-Wilson:
1) What is the theme of your poem?
The theme of ‘Paris – The Atrocity’ is Human Interest, Emotive, Rhyme.
2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?
My aim is to draw the reader/listener into the heart of the subject matter. In the case of ‘Paris – The Atrocity’ I hope the poem will allow people to explore their own thoughts surrounding the tragic events, and raise an awareness of the secondary consequences of such atrocities.
I began writing poetry as a cathartic process during some troubled times in 2010.
4) Do you have a favorite poet?
No, I don’t really have a favorite poet. I am very much inspired by life events and write inspirational, biographical poetry. My style is always rhyming verse. However, I have been influenced by Pam Ayres who is an English poet, comedian and songwriter. My next book due to be published by Pegasus Eliot Mackenzie in 2016 is a humorous collection of dating stories told in rhyme.
I was given the opportunity to submit to Wildsound following the publication of ‘Paris – The Atrocity’ on the poetry festival website. After reviewing some poetry performances I thought it would be beneficial to promote my work to a wider audience via Wildsound.
6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?
