Soon after completing Greater Matter - A Journey of Poems to Death and Beyond, Silke was prompted to assemble unassuming house and garden poem pairs. The book that resulted is entitled Sweet Nothings. It includes 35-odd empty pages encouraging the reader to find peace by means of the writerly process. Since then, she has created two new manuscripts, which she is intending to home with the right publisher.
The wonderful Give Your Writing the Edge newsletter archive is currently only available on request - please email email@example.com - but you will find helpful writing tips on this website, among the Nuggets.
This was a space where Silke dreamed her dreams, spoke her mind, shared her journey and sometimes disappeared from - a sign that she was enjoying her solitude. In July 2021, she took a sabbatical from regular postings, in order to focus on a new relationship, as well as care for her elderly parents. In February 2023, she posted her first blog for this year and is definitely geared to posting more regularly again!
