Liam Heaney

I was born and raised in Belfast and have been writing poetry for a number of years.  I have lived through the turbulent times in Northern Ireland but have made a conscious effort not to use the so-called 'Troubles' as a resource for my poetry. The themes or topics of my poems are quite varied but I often find myself returning to the natural world and to the wonders of science for inspiration.

I find the process of writing quite challenging but it is also very rewarding, especially when you complete a poem which you feel has effectively captured some of your key ideas, observations and/or experiences.

I have also written some short stories which Forward Press have published in a number of their anthologies. This has given me great encouragement over the years.

In August 2010, I was very pleased to receive a letter from Forward Press informing me that one of my poems, 'Barcelona 2010' had been chosen for a forthcoming anthology. The poem aims to capture, in a very simple way, my experiences of the Spanish Grand Prix in May of this year.

Over a number of years, I have had other poems published in anthologies and journals. However, I would really like to have a collection of my poems published in a book. It is certainly something to aim for, but whether it happens or not, I will continue to enjoy writing and reading poetry.

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.
