"Keep your face

always  towards the sunshine –

and shadows will fall

behind you"

Walt Whitman


Cherrie Taylor - Poetry


Cherrie was born in Cornwall and moved to West Sussex when aged five. The coast and seashore are important parts of her life. She was told that some of her first words were written in the sand!

She has enjoyed writing stories and poetry since childhood. In 2012 she studied Creative Writing with the Open University. Her influences are wide-ranging and her work has been published in magazines and anthologies. She has won prizes for her poetry and short stories.

Her poems always have a poignancy which, in the main, empathise with human concerns, often profoundly but at other times light-heartedly and she never shies away from tackling ‘difficult’ subjects by ensuring her researches are well-founded.

Stepping on Shadows' is her new collection of poems.
