A note from me (athousandbitsofpaper.com) I enjoyed working with Claire so much on this – you can find Claire’s other spoken word poetry on the sound hound link above and her blog is a wonderful insight into a writers life abroad. I love Claire’s voice, my miserable attempts at spoken word poetry recordings are embarrassing but hers have such presence and depth as I’m sure you will find when you go check her site out.
It has taken me a little while to share this as I couldn’t work out how to do so off my phone (which I predominately use for blogging and reading) My wifi on the Mac is now fixed so harar (I have no idea how to spell hirragh – harragh – hirrrragggh – nope that isn’t it either – sorry forget it) anyway I was able to do so today so here it is.
Thanks again Claire.

It was a pleasure, Kate. I hope you do persist with recording yourself at some point though! I think everyone’s voice should be heard 🙂
Hmm we’ll see – I get very self conscious and it kind of wrecks the poem. I hope I reblogged your post correctly Claire – have been meaning to do it for awhile but my MAC was being pedantic and I couldn’t seem to do it off my phone. Some days tech ticks me off 😏
Looks good to me! 🙂
Whoah. Your beautiful words in spoken form. It’s beautiful! I love this!
Claire has an amazing voice for spoken word poetry as well as being a great poet herself. I was so chuffed to be in on this collaboration.
I hope you will do more collaboration! And maybe you can do your own spoken word for your poetry also? :p
