Just heard that two of my poems ‘Six Week Check’ and ‘Repeat Prescription’ have been accepted for this new NHS Anthology edited by Dr Katie Amiel and Deborah Alma and judged by Michael Rosen. It will be published in March 2020.
CALDER VALLEY POETRY – YORK READING – FOGGIN, NASH, STORR
John Foggin’s Dark Watchers: ‘Each poem in this collection is gift-wrapped in a rare richness of language … John Foggin is a poet at the top of his game and this is a collection that will stay with you long after the final note has been played.’ (Tom Weir)
The poems in Steve Nash’s Myth Gatherers are ‘desire paths, inviting us to find our own way through the rich, surreal, tender landscape he invokes, a world where silences are coloured in pencil, valleys brim with ‘intoxicating uncertainty’ and darkness is a benediction.’ (Helen Mort)
