The Book Launch


It has been three years and three months since I left my full time job as a journalist. I wanted to see what would happen if I made the time and space in my life to write more creatively. This is what happened, this book!

My debut collection, 'The Spaces in Between' will be launched on Wednesday, September 9th, at 7.30pm at The Cellar Bar, Cardigan, which is where it all started really.

Here's a bit of the text from the back cover:

"Love, relationships, death and loss, and the fiercely political are all here in The Spaces in Between, the debut poetry collection from Jackie Biggs. Her work draws on ideas of memory, reflection and the human emotions that colour our daily lives and she brings nature and landscape to life in her poetry."

And here's a link to a podcast of me talking with Martin Locock of Spoken Word Wales about poetry, this collection, writing haiku, PENfro Book Festival (which I am chairing this year) and spoken word events around west Wales:
