‘Barcelona in my dreams’ featured at Spillwords Press

I am excited to announce that my poem ‘Barcelona in my dreams’ is a featured poem at Spillwords Press today. Please head over to Spillwords to read the poem. You can also watch my reading of the poem if you wish. I have described this poem as my ‘unfinished love letter to Barcelona.’ It is unfinished because I could write many more stanzas, and you will notice the published version is slightly different to the reading. That’s because I’m always tweaking it to try and make it better.

I lived in and around Barcelona from April 2016 to February 2019. My second son was born within sight of La Sagrada Família, so I do believe this city will always have a huge place in my heart.

My thanks once again to editor Dagmara and the team at Spillwords Press for their continued support of my work.
