Katrina joins the Society of Authors Poetry Committee.
Developing Strengths and Finding New Avenues will run from 18-23 November 2019.
Katrina Naomi has written a new poem for the Eighty Four anthology. Her poem, ‘Hide All the Knives’, features in Verve Poetry Press’s forthcoming anthology, Eighty Four: Poems on Male Suicide, Vulnerability, Grief and Hope. Eighty Four will be published in January 2019 priced at £9.99 and is available to order here. Poems have been donated to Eighty Four by Andrew McMillan, Katrina Naomi, Carrie Etter, Salena Godden, Anthony Anaxagorou, Joelle Taylor and many others, to raise money for the charity CALM. Eighty Four is edited by Helen Calcutt.
Katrina’s versions of Yasuaki Inoue’s haiku are in Modern Poetry in Translation. She translated these five poems during an Arts Council- funded trip to Japan, and is grateful to Professor Michiyo Takano of Yamanashi Prefectural University for her literal translations. Yasuaki Inoue is editor of Kakko (Cuckoo) haiku society and journal in Japan. In 2019, Katrina will be publishing, Typhoon Etiquette, a pamphlet of Japan-themed poems with Verve Poetry Press.
