Tara Msiska

I have always loved poetry, from nursery rhymes my mum read to me as a child, to children's poetry books and anthologies as I grew up. I first started writing "poems" at home when I was six and have not stopped since. One of my poems was published in an anthology, 'Bright Voices', when I was 13. I was also given the opportunity to read one of my poems, 'Suffragette', on ITV's 'Lookaround' at age 17. I could not have developed my interest in writing poetry without the support and encouragement of my mum, who bought me literally hundreds of books and got me my first library card when I was 8 months old. Thank you to the teachers of Hawick High School who helped me improve my poems and gave me opportunities to share them at school assemblies and on television in 2007. My favourite poets are Kipling, Baudelaire and Yeats.  I've loved Baudelaire since my mum read 'Flowers of Evil' to me when I was 9, and I just appreciated it more and more as I grew up.  Although most of these poems were written while I was a teenager, I turned 20 this April and I don't plan to stop writing anytime soon! I'm currently studying law but poetry will always have a place in my life.

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.
