A review of Paul Farley’s new collection, a poem, some reading and an anthology.


I have written a review of Paul Farley’s latest collection ‘The Mizzy’  which you can read in the excellent online poetry magazine The High Window here

The writer Wendy Pratt has kindly included a new poem of mine in a piece about Sparrowhawks here   
Do click the link and read Wendy’s vivid account of the bird’s visit to her garden as well as watching
the breath-taking short film of the preditor in action.  Wendy’s poetry collection ‘Gift’s The Mole Gave Me’ is on it’s way and I am looking forward to reading it.

Current reading includes Tony Hoagland’s last collection ‘Priest Turned Therapist Treats Fear of God’ (Bloodaxe Books, 2019)
Deryn Rees-Jones ‘Erato’ (Seren, 2019) is another beautiful and recent book I keep returning to. Highly recommended.

The anthology ‘These Are The Hands; poems from the heart of the NHS’ from Fair Acre Press, with all profits going to help NHS charities, arrived and is expertly reviewed by Gregg Freeman here   
My contribution is the poem ‘Trace’, from The Great Animator. You can buy a copy of the an here
