Angela Edgar, also know as Angee … an Inspiring New Poet, has had a love of writing since her days as a young teenager. With a diverse working history spanning Retail, Video Production, finally forging a Contact Centre career in Market Research, a writing hiatus of 6 years ensued which ended in 2006.
Taking up writing all over again, Angee put pen to paper, discovering she had a talent as if it were the dawn of a new day. Poetry came thick and fast, and with this new found confidence, followed a tentative leap into the arena of Spoken Word performances.
Cultivating an online following of readers, a few of whom actively encouraged her to pursue this dream and loyally supported her growth on this developmental journey, the reality of being eventually approached by a publisher (in this case Mad Jock of Liverpool) therefore seemed inevitable.
Her publisher Rols Sperling describes one of her poems ‘Intimacy of a Kiss’ as “Very beautiful and surprisingly understated. You have an ability to throw in a line of sheer exquisiteness without even so much as a trumpet fanfare.”
Not defined by writing in one genre or style, Angee tackles any and everything that comes to her mind or her heart, sharing her experiences and observations of daily life and fantasy in her own unique style which has resulted in her first collection of poetry called INSPIRED published 11th Feb 2008 and available now.
I hope you like the new features Angee! :-) As soon as you post one of your audio readings I am DEFINITELY featuring it on the home page. Also looking forward to that cup of English tea someday soon. :-)
Hey London - good to see/hear from you! I haven't written poetry for a long time, although I was published many years ago, back in school. It is liberating to write when something is eating at you. I had forgotten how good it feels. I wrote in the form of poetry this time, and it felt right and relieving. I did it after listening to your audio about Why I Write. You are inspiring and you have a lovely voice, as well! :-)
There's a stark difference between how the national press covered the events of 1963 in Birmingham and how Birmingham's papers covered their own city. Audie Cornish talks with Alabama journalist Hank Klibanoff, co-author of The Race Beat, about the disparity.
The legislation is one of the most far-reaching abortion bills in decades and follows the May murder convictions of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. The bill, which would ban nearly all abortions starting 20 weeks after fertilization, is unlikely to ever become law.
The city of London boasts centuries of architectural history. But a building boom is threatening the city's traditionally low-rise aesthetic and the views of some of that history. Critics — including UNESCO — are very worried about London's changing skyline.
This week Audie Cornish travels to Birmingham, Ala., to revisit some of the stories that shaped that city and the nation in the summer of 1963. Today she talks with Hank Klibanoff, co-author of The Race Beat about how the newspapers covered the civil rights struggle fifty years ago.
Smartphone apps can help count calories or detect a heart attack. People are embracing them to manage many aspects of their health. But medical apps are largely unregulated now, so there's no easy way to be sure which ones are trustworthy and which ones aren't.
In the past decade, Mexico's tech industry has flourished, growing three times faster than the global average. Most of that growth has been fueled by demand from the United States. But as Mexico's startups strive to make it in foreign markets, they say they need more engineers and ways to finance their growth.
Melissa Block talks to Republican Congressman Mac Thornberry, who serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He talks about the testimony by leaders of the National Security Agency, the Department of Justice and the FBI on Tuesday morning. He's been supportive of the NSA surveillance program, saying it's not only legal, but vital to security.
Protests have erupted in Brazil over the past week. On Monday, there were tens of thousands of demonstrators on the streets of cities across the country. And again on Tuesday, demonstrations have continued. Unlike in Turkey, Brazil's leaders are adopting a conciliatory tone.
