About wordpoppy

Welcome to the Wordpoppy website 

Grace Palmer I’m a writer based in Bristol. I organise Novel Nights, a live literature event for writers. I teach creative writing at the Folk House

Thanks for visiting my site.


Poppies spring up in unexpected places, they’re undimmed and perky, refuse to lie dormant, a little like words and stories which have to be told.

When I was very young I used to go to riding school every Saturday – the pony I loved was called Poppy. Every week she’d canter down the field and throw me off, at the same spot. I kept getting back on. As a writer you have to keep going, you have to believe in yourself; you do it because you can’t stop.

Poppies are communal  – so I want this site to be a place to share experiences of writing.

My grandmother was a great gardener – my favourite photograph of her is with a backdrop of large oriental poppies.

This website at wordpoppy  is a place where I want to share my work and my writing adventures, as well as what it means to be creative.wordpoppy2
