It may interest you to know, that we are working towards publishing our own book of Football Poems.
The book is to be entitled “Swapping Shirts With Shakespeare”.
It will feature 11 poets from this website, including : Stuart Butler, Crispin Thomas, Sharon Marshall, Louise Ann Lacey, Richie Hession, Michael (SoonerGooner) Adubato, Clik the mouse, Daniel McDonagh, John J O’Connor, and Ismail Bala Garba. The authors span 6 countries, giving the whole project an International flavour.
Currently, Michael is working closely with Sharon and Louise organizing the project.
A self publishing company is being investigated.
An ancilliary website has been created to give a little more information on the project.
The url is http://footballpoets.tripod.com
An illustrator has volunteered his services to do the cover : Tim Bradford is a fellow football poet, known to many of us as Pele from onetouchfootball.com
Tim’s work can be seen at www.TimBradford.com
Depending on progress, the book will be available in 2004.
And depending on success, other writers will hopefully feature in follow up editions!
