About Me

I am from Ireland, Ulster born. A recent addition to swap-bot's many members, I am seeking fellow writers to correspond with. I'm particularly interested in literature, culture, history and art.

Currently, I write a regular blog (see link above). I would love any forthcoming feedback on this.

I am a former student, studying English and History. My special interest is social and cultural history - any period, it doesn't matter! So, if anyone has anything to share on this topic, please talk to me.

Likes

Primarily, I'm looking for pen-pals and people willing to share creative work such as fiction and poetry.

Please send:

β€’ Letters. I prefer hand-written, but typed is fine - as long as they are filled with personality. The decision, ultimately, is up to you.

β€’ Postcards. (Please see below.)

β€’ Photographs. Any 'artsy' or fantastic photographs will always be welcomed. Discussions on photography (essays, etc.) are also welcome.

β€’ Illustrations. Again, anything 'artsy', new or novel will be welcomed.

β€’ Books. If the opportunity arises, I would love to contribute to books swaps.

Please send all of the above (excepting postcards) in stamped envelopes.

I am especially interested in receiving correspondence in French. Currently, I am learning to read and write the language. So, please, if you're a native speaker, send me well written pieces to help my learning. I promise to reward such efforts.

Postcards

Preferably, I would like written postcards sent without envelopes. Please send any style or design - I am not fussy at all (!)

Favorite Books

My list is endless, but here are some excellent works:

β€’ 'The Rainbow' (1915) by D.H. Lawrence. (Nottingham's finest writer.)

β€’ Anything by Samuel Beckett (1906-89)!

β€’ 'Ulysses' (1921) by James Joyce. (Yes; I'm one of those Joyce-freaks. I welcome any discussions of Joyce, Dublin, or Irish literature in general.)

Dislikes

β€’ Please no stickers/sticky-notes!

β€’ Please no soap, edibles, or perishable items.

β€’ Anything hateful or abusive will not be accepted (and probably reported.)

Favorite Music

Anything by Madonna

Comment: How lucky I am that you got my name for another swap, Dillon! I loved your letter - it had me laughing like crazy when I read the poem (I shared it with my husband and now I'm scared he'll start comparing my face to a cut-open potato). You have such a wonderful way of writing letters - it certainly made my day receiving another piece of mail from you. Thank you so much!!
Response: Great stuff! Thank you again

Comment: Thank you Dillon for the letter and the beautifully crafted poems. I thought you did an excellent job writing them! I really picked up on the Irish voice that you wrote into them - I can't choose which of them is my favorite, but I really liked the imagery you used in 'The Morning Statue'. Thank you so much again, and I do hope you host this swap regularly! I really enjoyed writing poems for my partner as well. Have a lovely day!
Response: Thank you ever so much

Comment: A snapshot of your inner world materialized in a tiny black box at the end of my drive. Snow is melting & the box is insecure, leaving your thoughts dripping wet - fitting!
