I should have realised way back when I got my first hotmail account and I was allocated the username of melindasmith5647484 that Melinda Smith was way too common a name to go into print with. It’s too late to change now – I’ve got two books and a dozen or so new poems published under that moniker – but I wish I had selected something a bit more special. Woodina Allen for instance. Or M.L.L.L.L.Cool-Jay.
Anyway, to set the record straight, I am providing some links to the pages and/or works of poets called Melinda Smith who ARE NOT ME. Enjoy.
