I don’t know how to say this in a way that I haven’t already said, but thankyou so so so much to the now 20 000 large group of you who have decided to follow along on my poetry journey. I don’t think I’d ever be able to accurately explain to you all how amazing you have made my life this year and how happy every single sweet message makes me. I hope you all continue to enjoy my work into the future.

I’ve decided to say thankyou the only way I know how; by giving away two signed copies of the book that your support allowed me to make.image

I’m going to be giving away one copy on tumblr and one on my instagram.

If you want the chance to win the tumblr copy, simply reblog this post. I will be using a random generator to pick a winner on September 1st. Please make sure if you’re under 18 you have your parents permission as I will need to get your address if you win in order to send it to you! (This is international and you don’t have to live in Australia to enter!) Feel free to also enter the instagram winner by following the instructions over there.

Once again thankyou for everything. Your support has brought me some amazing opportunities this year and I cannot say it enough. I hope I continue to do you proud!

xx Erin

Hi everyone! I was recently interviewed by Julia from Positively Glamorous. If you fancy learning a bit more about me you can check out the interview here! xx

I’ve just been alerted by a girl who bought one of my books that her version was misprinted and had boxes where the four line poems are meant to be. If anything like this happens to anyone else please let me know so we can both complain to Lulu about it. Things like that shouldn’t be happening.

"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
— RIP Robin Williams. Thankyou for being such an important part of a movie that has inspired me so many times over, I truly believe I wouldn’t be the person I am without it.
travelwedo asked: I'm sure someone has already messaged about this, and more are still to come, and you were going to do it anyway, but "What if I fall? -- Oh, but my darling, what if you fly!" would look amazing on a poster and everyone would buy it. But the full poem, not just these two lines. It absolutely has to be the whole thing.

I’ll definitely put that one up there! I’m thinking of doing a few different versions of it too since it’s my most well known poem. Thankyou! xx
