Katie Weston is a poet from Wakefield, West Yorkshire in England.

After completing an MA in English Literature in 2008, she stumbled into secondary education in Sheffield, where she spent an interesting four years working with teenagers before abandoning the curriculum in pursuit of a more creative role.

Following a brief spell of working part-time in marketing and PR whilst endeavouring to gain voluntary experience in the arts and charity sectors, Kate landed her dream job at The Reader Organisation in Liverpool, which essentially involves getting paid to read to people!

Besides reading and writing, Katie is passionate about creativity in all its forms, animal rights, and crisps. In her book-fuelled fantasies, she oscillates between the opposing personas of a tortured bohemian poet, frantically typing away in a sun-starved attic, and a hedonistic globe-trotting adventurer, raging against the machine.

This blog was created not just as an outlet for her creative expression, but also as a means of helping others to see the magic in the mundane- the wonderful layers of thought and possibility that exist if you only use your imagination.

Feel free to comment, and please like or follow if you also enjoy creative expression in all its forms.

  1. You’re welcome. Ditto! It’s always interesting to read other people’s perspectives on things, and good to see that there are some thought-provoking posts by more ‘senior’ members of the blogging community!

  2. No problem Kevin! I’m not a gardener whatsoever, but I found your descriptions very poetic and your writing in general is great. It’s always a pleasure to read things that are gramatically correct and well-structured! Thanks for the likes and follow- it’s good to know people appreciate your words!

  3. Katie, interesting intro, why in second person πŸ™‚ the photo is brilliant, like those naturally fiery eyes, shows your passion πŸ™‚

    • I just thought it’d be interesting to write from a more seemingly objective perspective, rather than first person.

      Thanks AB- you say the nicest things. And you’re right- I am definitely quite a passionate person. That’s the excuse I always use for my red eyes in photos!

      • Let me know if you need better portraits πŸ™‚ never red eyes (ocean blue is a different matter) πŸ™‚ I am an ordinary, yet a proud clicker πŸ™‚

  4. Rapture… A nice Blondie song. Early eighties if I recall. Ask your parents, but it probably was released around the time you were born? (1984? Very Orwell!)
    ‘Like your blog and the Reading programme in Liverpool. Nice initiative.
    Drop by Equinoxio any time, see if you like it.
    Take care

    • I think Rapture came out just after my brother was born in early 1981. I do enjoy a bit of a Blondie, but the word ‘rapture’ is one of my faves, so that’s the reason for the photo!

      Cheers for taking the time to stop by- it’s always good to receive some positive comments!
