The contributors were asked to write a poem based on the book cover image. Unsurprisingly, many of the poems featured are dominated by the elements. The writers touch upon various subjects, however and readers are sure to discover a flavour they will enjoy. All proceeds of this collection will be shared between homeless charities both in the UK and US, reflecting the international collaboration behind this project.
The authors featured comprise: Sharena Lee Satti, Paula Acton, Audrina Lane, Eleanor Lloyd-Jones, Anna-Maria Athanasiou, Sarah Michelle Lynch, A. Stone, Andy Lynch, Stevie Turner, Lisa Fulham, O.Y. Flemming, Mark Heathcote, Alison Clarke, Victoria Kenna, T.F. Webb, Louise White and Mandy Gibson.
I am excited to announce this new poetry collection featuring 17 different authors. Proceeds of this project will be split between two charities: Hull Homeless (UK-based) and VOA (US-based, homeless). Please check out our book! Buy links below….

There’s still time to join my latest charity project – a poetry anthology. Please join me over on Facebook to learn more, or you can email me for all the details. I am looking for poems, but there’s no minimum or maximum word count, you just have to write something inspired by our cover art! I’ve had some great contributions so far . . . and there’s more to come! Submissions are open until January 31st – please let me know if you have something but it’s going to be late.
I’m galvanising my social networks this year, after a very busy writing year in 2018. This includes opening up review opportunities. If you’d like to read one of my books for free in exchange for an honest review, just fill out this form. I also have a reader group on Facebook where you can gather to discuss what you’ve read in a closed environment!
Similarly, if you’ve read and enjoyed one of my books lately and just haven’t got around to reviewing yet, why not pop some stars and a line or two of review on Amazon or Goodreads? If possible, tag me so that I know you’ve reviewed!
I’m currently working on a few NEW things, but predominantly I plan to release at least one thriller and my first poetry book this year!

Lots of “blind date with a book” packages have gone out to readers this week and I’m so pleased they’re already getting stuck in, so to speak!
The above image shows the packages I have left: prices include P&P within the UK (as a special offer) because I need to clear out my office! Please contact me via FB message or through my contact form or via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to purchase a book or two. Payment can be made via Paypal.
You’ll see on my website that I have an area for readers to buy signed books – you can order anything you like from there, but you won’t get as good a deal as you will ordering the Blind Date books! Readers familiar with my work will be able to work out which package contains what.
It’s your last chance to grab Poems To My Younger Self from Amazon. After March 31st, it won’t be on public sale anymore. I have limited copies in my personal stock which you can purchase from me, but once they’re gone, they’re gone! Please don’t miss out. Order your copy direct from me and you will get a squiggle and a free bookmark – and maybe some other swag. All proceeds go to Make A Wish.

Every single author has brought it for this project and I’d just like to say thank-you to them all for really getting what I wanted from them. I’m so happy with this book, and I think you will be, too.
ALL PROCEEDS of this book are going to MAKE A WISH, a charity granting wishes to terminally ill children. One of our own writers, KA Hobbs told me her sister was granted a wish before she died and it meant everything to her sister and their family. This is such a special charity and we hope this book provides hope but also a generous donation, too.
If you would like a review copy, please visit THIS FORM and fill out your details. Review copies will be sent in the form of a Kindle book – but please note – “Poems To My Younger Self” will only go on sale in paperback. Poetry needs to be read on the page. It’s so much more powerful that way.
The paperback will be available to buy from Amazon on February 20th but I’ll also be selling this in person at the Leeds Author Event on March 3rd, 2018. Many of the contributing authors will be in attendance that day. I’ll let you know how you can pre-order your copies for this event beforehand.
More details are to come… and I’ll be posting snippets of everyone’s poems on my Instagram account in the run-up to publication, so do not miss out!
Can you ably sling words together? Well then, I need your poems to create an anthology which will raise money for the MAKE A WISH foundation, a charity which seeks to make the dreams of terminally ill children come true! I’ll be selling this book at the LEEDS 2018 book signing and making your words available on AMAZON, too.
- I am looking for poems that are 100+ words long (no upper limit)
- Your poem needs to be on the theme “Poems To My Younger Self” but you can title your poem as you like.
- Your poem needs to be emailed to me by NOVEMBER 30th, 2017 at the latest. Sorry, but no late entries. Please send your words via email to email@example.com – but if you receive no response at all, it’s likely you’ve gone to spam. In this case, please just drop me a quick message on my FB page @SarahMLynch
- You don’t need to have loads of accolades or any poetic experience at all (even) to enter for a chance to be part of this anthology. Just write from the heart is all I ask!
- I will take no monetary reward whatsoever for putting together this book. It’s all off my own back, it’s all for a good cause.
- You don’t need to be attending the book signing (or be a signing author) to put forth your entry. I welcome entries from the US and beyond.
- I’m asking for previously unpublished words. It would be nice if the first time people read your poem is in our book.
For full details, visit my dedicated page: https://sarahmichellelynch.com/poetry-project/
I look forward to reading everyone’s words.
Long time no speak.
This is just a short broadcast about an upcoming project of mine.
Basically, I am looking for poems above the 100 word mark. They must (sort of) be in line with the theme “Poems to My Younger Self”.
Please visit my dedicated page on this site: sarahmichellelynch.com/poetry-project for all the details. You’ll find everything you need to know right there and hopefully, most of it covers all the questions you may have!!
This is all for charity. So please consider contributing if you are indeed a poet or budding poet, even!
