Candia

Suttonford, Isles of Wonder

My name is Candia. Its initial consonant alliterates with “cow” and there are connotations with the adjective “candid.” I started writing this blog in the summer of 2012.

I started writing ironic news comment and then added reviews, stand-alone chapters
as experiments in collecting writing for a humorous novel. I interspersed these with my own poetry, most of which had been published in reputable small magazines.
Lately I have been writing more poetry than ever and I have been experimenting with different forms and structures. My first anthology came out last year (Its Own Place) and I have been giving readings to various groups and doing book signings.
Hope you will dip into my archives and perhaps choose to follow me. It is my readers that encourage me to keep producing!
