Writing the Seasons

6.jpg

In the time between Christmas and the lead-up to Easter, there’s this short but rich time that the church for a long time has called Epiphany – the name given to the light of the good news of Jesus being shown to people of all nations and backgrounds. Here at The Consolations of Writing we are remembering this often-forgotten season through a series of poems reflecting on light, darkness and the wisdom of God.

  1. Hi Matt, I really like your web site! I have read your Lenten poems and your essay on history,and faith. You have a gift for writing in a way which clarifies the issues. I look forward to reading yor Sabah poems.

    1. Thankyou! That’s very encouraging. I’ve already received a Liebster Award so I may not officially accept this one, but it’s much appreciated. And congratulations on your nomination too.

  2. Hi Matthew,
    My name’s Miriam, and I’ve heard about your site (and I think met you before?) around Melb Christian circles. I really resonate with your ethos and writing, and congrats on the SPCKA comp! =)

  3. Hi Matthew, Tony Roberts said I should drop by and say “Hi”. So…. “Hi!”
    Tony said you were contributing some poems to his up and coming book, “Delight in Disorder”.
    I’m looking forward to delving into your blog 🙂
    Blessings,
    Lyn

  4. I like The Consolation of Writing as a definition and as an act! “Con-sole” makes me think of “With” and “Alone”, being next to someone alone, and writing can be that powerful, getting close to people. Thank you for the follow by the way. Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one.
    So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian…
    I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages. Keep up the good work. Blessings,
    Anna
