So what is Ginz&Tonic? A glass of gin topped up with tonic and a slice of lime? Ummm – think again! Ginz&Tonic is the unique year long poetry challenge from 2013 to 2014 to blog a poem a day – yep that’s one poem every single day for 365 days – in the attempt to raise awareness of the work of stars.org.uk who support those suffering from unexplained blackout. Although coming up with all these poems are such good fun it just might go on and on and on … who knows!
So who is Ginz?
Well that will be me – or Gini – loosely coined poet, Mum to four amazing teenagers, host to a resident cat and doting dog and lover of life generally. And as you might have guessed serial fainter – hence the connection to stars.org.uk due to wretched health conditions that are generally a considered inconvenience. Oh and on a lighter note ‘psycho in training’ studying a Psychology degree as well.
Well come on – it’s an obvious pairing really isn’t it? Or if you want to get techie it’s the stressed syllable in the word but go on we’ll sit happy with the bubbly quinine water and sit back, feet up with a glass or two of something to enjoy what hopefully will be an enjoyable, sometimes funny, sometimes serious, occasionally thought provoking but always entertaining read!
Go on! You know you want to! A year’s worth of poems are just this click away! :)
Most importantly don’t whatever you do click the follow button on the side bar however tempting or you just might join the hundreds of other followers who subscribe to this blog and enjoy regular updates so they don’t miss out!
