Naturastipendium / Writer’s scholarship!

So insanely happy to have received a writer’s scholarship. I was sent to the North in Sweden, close to the Norwegian border. The hosts, Bodil and Kenneth, at Jormlien Fjällgård where amazing! Great tips on where to head in the surroundings and wow, was I inspired by the wild untouched nature. I even bumped into a bear one day. I have a lots of photos on instagram from that trip. I wrote, painted and was engaged in wonderful conversations with the locals. Just before the departure I had finished writing on a long project – a novel, so this journey was all about shaking off the old, finding base and from there take off on new writings. So exited to get my claws into something new!

Författarcentrum 50år!

Författarcentrum firar 50år och jag har haft nöjet att få fira det med andra eminenta författare från Norr.

Stadshuset i Sundsvall bjöd på lokal för våra framträdanden och vi avslutade firandet i sann livsnjutaranda på Knaust hotell med trerättersmeny. Knaust har genom historien varit tillhåll för traktens författare och konstnärer. De vackra miljöerna och den goda maten kan man förstå lockar esteter och ordförvaltare.

I samband med Författarcentrums 50års firande släpptes även den 2:a delen i Serien Pocket Poetry for Moments of Despair, Ode to Destiny. Champagnen poppade och skummet flödade.

Release! Ode to Destiny

The feeling when you hold your book in your hand is indescribable!

When I started writing the Series Pocket Poetry for Moments of Despair I was clear about that I wanted to keep them in a small easy-to-carry-format.

People are often afraid of poetry I have noticed. Afraid that they might not understand, find it boring or way too heavy, not in weight but in heart.

Ode to Destiny is like The Silent Songs a small collection of uplifting poems to keep you on track towards the goals of your dreams. I would like to think about them as inspirational poetry. Don’t be afraid, just enjoy!

The release will be held at the Townhall in Sundsvall,
13 September 2017
Most Welcome!

Writing Chronicle

I received a message on my Linked-In. “Would you like to write a chronicle for the magazine Konstperspektiv, (perspective on Art), why don’t you think about it.”

I tell you what, I did not have to think about that at all. I simply returned the message within seconds stating “how many key characters and when is the deadline”

I wrote about the circle of life and art. Nietzsche also gets his voice heard. The result you can find in Nr 3 issued 25th August 2017!

Refugee day 20 Juni

Hej Vänner!

Gillar du Poesi & vill göra skillnad?
20 Juni (Idag) är världsdagen för flyktingar eller world refugee day på initiativ av UNHCR – FNs flyktingorgan. När jag själv ville göra skillnad men saknade medel kom jag på idén att donera poesi.
Så när du köper e-boken går alla intäkter oavkortat till UNHCR!
Tillsammans gör vi skillnad

READERS REVIEW:
“Linda Ghaderis skildring av vägen från slutet till början rymmer både andlighet och djup allmänmänsklig erfarenhet. Att hon i perspektivet av dagens alla utsatta flyktingbarn skänker behållningen från den första e-bokupplagan av The Silent Songs till UNHCR är helt i linje med andan i dikterna.” Jill Hoffmann de Maré

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Silent Songs is a poetic journey into self, through doubt and despair, searching for the way back home. With these 12 poems you will find the human experience is a road trip for the eternal soul.
Those who cherish timeless mystics, such as Rumi, will most certainly appreciate The Silent Songs.
DONATE & READ POETRY

 

Summing up prior Gothemburg Bookfare Monter C04:29 Thu 16:00 Fri 15.30 

Since April and the book launch things has been rather buzy & lazy. I went to Sundsvall and performed my poetry to Magical Tomas Tiberts music and found some new readers that I enjoyed chatting with.

I also met Anita Jacobson a fabolous hardworking poet and we had a long afternoon tea on my veranda at our sommerplace, tea ran out twice so we decided to continue with dinner. By midnight we counted stars before we said…see you soon again! Amazing when conversations never seem to come to an end.
Sunny skies and bading was part of this summer togheter with my 2-year old son. This august he went to kindergarden and he loves it. That brings peace in a poet mothers heart. The staff is great.

I was planning of keeping my blog up and kicking all this time but the thing I did lack was time. I just decided to be all mum since the maternity leave was coming to an end.

Now It’s time to get going again and I look forward to it. I wanted to post a video but I do not manage to get it out of my phone! Any clues? I can’t find how to save it on the memorycard…

I’ve been invited to Gothemburg International Bookfare by the English Bookshop and will be signing the Silent Songs in their monter C04:29 thursday 16:00 and friday 15:30 then Meg Rosoff comes along for signing her great childrens books.

I really hope to see and meet you there and please if you see me in the chaos please stop me and have a chat! meet n greet

Dansanta Bokhandlare

När musiken drar igång och det började att spritta i benen, vad gör man? Hugger tag i första bästa bokhandlare och ja Lennart på Akademibokhandeln i Sundsvall är en rackare på att dansa!

6 Juni bjöd på sol och fin publik när jag och Anita Jacobsson invigde den litterära scenen. Nya läsare kom fram och pratade och det var riktigt härlig stämning. Det är något speciellt att få prata direkt med dem som läser ens poesi. Fina möten att minnas.
