Laura Cheshire

My parents tell me that they could not agree on a single boy's name when they were discussing naming the baby, so it's a very good job that I was a girl and they could christen me Laura Michelle Cheshire. I was born in the south east of England, and lived there until I was sixteen, when my mum remarried. I now live in the edge of the peak park near Dovedale, and have found that nature is a strong influence on my more traditional poetry. Music is another huge influence on me, and I play classical cello and piano to a reasonable level. I have recently been writing more free verse exploring emotions, although as a child I spent huge amounts of time writing and talking in rhyme. I am now eighteen and plan to study English Literature at York university next year, with a long-term aim of making a living from poetry and painting. It's a long shot I know, but hey, we have all got to dream.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
