Paperback: $7.17

Work, pressure, and anxiety; love, loss, and lighter topics, such as drinking tea and travelling, are explored here with intelligence, sensitivity, and delightful dry humour. Daniels’... More > philosophical mind is much apparent as he observes, quizzes, and draws conclusions; so, too, is the poet’s restrained anger, which serves to energise his writing, catalysing the ordinary, here and there, into something more unsettling. It’s Daniels’ humanity, however, which shines through in this book, and which makes these very finely formed poems seem like a friend to carry with you. This is a wonderful, wry collection of work which I highly recommend. – Mab Jones Stephen Daniels is the editor of Fresh Air Poetry. His poetry has been published in numerous magazines and websites. His debut pamphlet ‘Tell Mistakes I Love Them’ was published in 2017 by V. Press. His second pamphlet ‘£5 for this love’ was published in 2018 by Paper Swans Press.< Less

"There is a rich seam of folklore running through Maggie Mackay’s first pamphlet, which is watched over by the presiding spirit of her mother. Mackay’s delight in the bounty of... More > language is palpable, so when she invites you to ‘pour a dram of uisge beatha’, sit down at her table by the fire for a spell and warm yourself." - Helen Ivory "Just as we are lulled by a fine malt whisky, we are summoned to where ‘the heart of the run is now’. With a touch of alchemy, we are transported to a land of ‘midnight and saffron’ where ‘dream castles float’ through deserts of sand, never forsaking the world of Gaelic mythology – of mermaids and lullabies, the hues of a Hebridean sunset. Lush with precious moments, these poems are a cornucopia of vibrant images all the way to the closing ghazal." - Alison Lock< Less

Chris helps with the organisation of the Cheltenham Poetry Festival... More > and the Gloucestershire Writers’ Network. He was once described in Bristol’s Venue magazine as “suffering from hip Sunday school teacher with guitar syndrome”, but that was probably just because of the spectacles... "Chris Hemingway’s poems are kind, rueful and shyly wise. They think. They tell stories. With lines which fall lightly into rhymes and chords, they reach for your heart. They sing." – Alison Brackenbury "These are poems for the rock stars we never were. They are full of melancholy, regret and acceptance – all delivered down the barrel of a finely tuned vinyl collection." - David Clarke Poignant, yet humorous, nuanced yet potent, these poems go down as easily, and almost as quickly, as an espresso, offering the same enervating kick at last gulp." - Anna Saunders< Less

She who pays the piper By Sue Kindon
Paperback: $7.40

"Kindon’s is a vivid and satisfying poetry of place, invoked, time and again, by the finely wrought details snared by a quick eyed love for the landscapes she so fulsomely inhabits. From... More > Westmorland to the Languedoc, her finely attuned sense of moment, place and story never wavers through twenty-three poems of impressive clarity and inventiveness." - Martin Malone "The gap between this world and another unseen world is porous and shifting in these poems and nothing is quite what it seems. Imbued with magic and mystery, landscape takes on a character of its own as the relationship between the self and the world around us comes under scrutiny. This collection is sure-footed and wide ranging, taking in the forests of Brittany and the stone circles of Cumbria, but always circling back to the connection between home and belonging, and how we measure time and its passing." - Kim Moore< Less
