Elaine Edwards

Elaine Edwards is a recent immigrant to Cape Town and lives in Melkbosstrand within the sound of the sea which soothes and disturbs in equal measures.

She loves writing, dancing, painting, meeting friends and spending time with family. She also keeps up a voluminous correspondence with friends all over the world and is presently writing a memoir of her childhood.

Although she has always written poetry, she has only recently taken it up seriously, now that her demanding teaching career is over. Her favourite poet of the moment is T.S.Eliot, in whose works she is finding much inspiration.

On most weekends you will find her, together with her husband, exploring the wine lands in the eternal pursuit of that perfect “little red”.
