About Ship Street Poetry

I am pretty sure that most of us don’t like being told what to do, and that maybe some of us are just a little more vocal about it than others.

Well I am one of the vocal ones.

That’s not to say I cannot take direction from people that know a lot more about a subject than I do.

In my opinion if it means anything, is that we should all be able to create books and art and music that moves us and hopefully moves others without the thought police trying to conform everyone to their way of life.

I created Ship Street Poetry because I wanted to be in control of my own words and artistic ideas, without having to get someone’s permission to do so. I have decided that Ship Street Poetry is also here to support other writers and artists with the same.

The name Ship Street Poetry came from a street sign I took a photo of one xmas eve not too long ago after leaving my favourite wine bar, the fact that it sounded very close to Shit Creek was just a bonus.

So my piece of “unsolicited wisdom” to others is this,

Create what you feel to create and when someone tells you to do it differently tell them to piss off.
