About me

These days 

I’m the mother of three (quite grown up) boys and a writer. I was a fashion designer in a previous, long ago, life. I write short stories and poetry and I’m trying to decide if I ever want to write ‘The Novel’… I love to get out and about, both to read my own work and to hear others read theirs, and often take part in courses and workshops. I’ll be sharing my experiences of any such events under the Away section above, along with my thoughts on Short Story and Poetry collections, Novels and Literary Magazines, and anything else that grabs me. Below are links to some of my work that has been published online and where to find a few of my poems and stories in print.

And this, dear editors, is my reaction each time I receive an acceptance... Pant-Wetting ecstasy!

  3. […] Lindsay Waller-Wilkinson: in a former life – a fashion designer obsessed with literature. Now a writer – unable to completely ignore that former life. Writing short stories, poems and always considering ‘The Novel’. Current projects include a series of sonnets about clothes. (and life, and love) called DressCode, and a linked novel-length collection of short stories.  Lindsay’s web link:  http://poemstorydreamreality.com/about/ […]
