Keep Warm: Make Trouble is Jane Commane’s poetry blog. It was started for NaPoWriMo 2013 and contains my blogging thoughts on poetry, culture and more.
About the author: Jane Commane is a Coventry-born poet, editor, writer, tutor and a general maker and doer of various things word and writing related. She has been published in magazines such as Tears in the Fence, Litter, Anon, Horizon Review and Gists & Piths and in several anthologies including Sherb: New Urban Writing from Coventry (Heaventree Press 2006), Best British Poetry 2011 (Salt Publishing, 2011) and Lung Jazz: Young British Poets for Oxfam (Cinnamon Press 2012).
Keep Warm: Make Trouble was chosen as a title for this blog after the long, unending winter of 2013/13 which reminded me of a slogan from an old Manics video, which seemed at first Situationist in origin (but actually more likely has its origins in a Jamie Reid artwork). Poetry is a wonderful and most enjoyable form of ‘trouble’ – done right, it takes time, trouble and care in its creation and is the greatest form of mischief you can have with just a thesaurus and a blank page for company.
