Poetic liberties

Have your say

It WAS good to have one of my poems in The Scotsman again. With a degree of irony, I described the present as an “age of communication”. I was disappointed, however, that this was changed to an “age of communications”, something different, more technological.

Still, this was not as distressing as when a poetry magazine published my poem Hairlines and confused “publicly sprouting” with “pubicly sprouting”.
