This months Blog Love is dedicated to Dawn from Rhyming With Wine
I’ve been following Dawns blog since she started, because as soon as you read one post you are hooked.
Dawn writes brilliant poetry. And not in a flowery what’s she going on about kind of way, but in a brilliant, relatable and laugh out loud kind of way. The amount of times she has made me snort my tea whilst I’ve been reading one of her poems.
The subject matter of Rhyming With Wine is parenting and Dawn has penned poems on so many parenting topics such as starting school, holidays and tantrums. Her Julia Donaldson parodies are amazing, and having written one myself I know how hard they are to do!
Dawns poems are warm, funny and have even brought a tear to my eye. She is an immensely talented lady and I love her blog. Dawns personality shines through her poetry and quite frankly I am in awe of her skills.
One of my highlights at this years BML conference was getting to meet Dawn in person and hearing her read one of her poems for her key note speech, which she did brilliantly. It’s always nice when you meet someone you’ve known online for a while and they are every bit as nice as you hoped they would be.
Dawn is also starting a new venture with the equally brilliant Gemma from Colleys Wobbles. You can read all about their journey into the world of children’s books at their new site Wobbles and Rhyme. I have a feeling they are going to be huge, and I wish Dawn and Gemma much success.
If you haven’t already checked out Rhyming With Wine, please do. I promise you will not be disappointed and will probably find yourself reading Dawns poems out loud to your other half and having a good giggle together.
