Thanks for stopping by. This is the place where you can find some of my writing – excerpts from my books, short stories, poetry and links to some of my music too. It’s also the place for all my news about upcoming events.
I’m really happy to be taking part in an exciting event for the wonderful Stonewall organisation very soon. Find out more about this here.
It continues to be a busy time for me, I’m happy to say. I have just finished a really exciting project – 100 Days of Podoku, my contribution to the international 100 Days Project. Exhibiting my poetry as visual art was a first for me, and we had loads of fun at the Tent Gallery in Edinburgh recently. Have a look at some of these hybrid poem/sudoku creations here.
I’m having so much fun with this exhibition business that I have decided to take part in another show in November: In The Shadows Cast By Trees. I am building a collection of poetry to accompany some incredible artwork. More information to follow very soon!
I have also been working away on my latest novel project – The Green Pearl – inspired by the artwork of my long-time collaborator, the amazing artist Cordula Marks Venters. Having performed several story-telling events at her exhibitions over the last two years, the novel is well under way. I’ll have more to tell you about this in the not too distant future.
Cordula and I are also working on another beautiful (and very different) book together and it is such a lot of fun – who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Have a little sneaky peak at “The World is so Exciting” here . We had a brilliant time recently, introducing these characters to a very excited group of kids and their parents at a fabulous literacy event in a local school.
Another project of mine can be previewed here: Free Your Creativity – Wings to Fly. Its working title was Ελενθερία, the Greek word for freedom and it’s all about freeing up your imagination and breaking free from creative and artistic blocks. I have been working with children and with adults on this project and it has been such an energising experience – I love it! If you’re interested in organising a workshop, check out this page.
I’m also delighted to say that one of my stories has been selected by a wonderful new site – Hold My Purse – you can read it here.
The best way to contact me is through Twitter @KVentersMarks – I’d be delighted to hear from you!
