Nina Callaghan - poet

Since birth I've been a bit melancholic - a sad-sack my mother would say.

My previous occupations of devising and performing physical theatre and working as a children's librarian in a public library put a smile in my heart. Eight years as a journalist in a newsroom almost wiped it completely though, but gave me other incisive skills.

My four-year-old daughter, current job at the Children's Radio Foundation and hospital clowning turns that infinite sadness on its head.

The times when I'm not just about keeping up with everything, I hike in the mountains, make mobiles and scribble poetry late at night after lengthy solitary ruminations...see told ya! :-)
