Published Writing 2012

Changes for 2012: I am now keeping specific records on a personal database so I may not feel the need to update Sections 1-10 (see list below) on this site.
Editors and others: if you see a poem title that might fit with an anthology theme or be of interest in some way, please feel free to contact me via the comments box or via the email on my profile page here. Thank you. 

2012 Updates . . . Publication of 'The Holy Place' by John Dotson and Caroline Gill

'The Holy Place' Launch Reading: co-author John Dotson,
publisher Peter Thabit Jones and me, Dylan Thomas Birthplace, Swansea


“Caroline Gill’s poems are written with an unerring sense of appropriate form. This makes her perception of landscapes and seas emerge all the more powerfully, as she explores places in people and people in places, the ‘rocks and stones and trees’ of Wordsworth’s poem. The effect is that of an enquiring, exciting mind, disciplined and accurate, yet also open to the magical and mysterious that lies just beneath the surface.” 
J.R. Watson, University of Durham, 2012

“Caroline has 18 poems in a chapbook, 'The Holy Place' ... I really enjoyed reading them and am sure you will too."  
Ronnie Goodyer in 'Reach Poetry' #170, Editor of Indigo Dreams Publishing, 2012
