• The highly anticipated second collection by Kim Moore
  • Polly Atkin’s startlingly original second collection Much With Body is a Poetry Book Society Winter Recommendation. Inspired by her home the Lake District, the book has a watery feel. Nature and our relationship to it features strongly. There is also a distinct link with the past in a central section of found poems taken from transcripts of the journals of Dorothy Wordsworth. Available now

    ‘Much With Body’ is a PBS Winter Recommendation
  • In her new collection We Have to Leave the Earth, Carolyn Jess-Cooke deftly interweaves the personal and the political. Climate change is confronted in a sequence about the Arctic; poems that are vividly descriptive of an extreme landscape, sensitive to the effects of global warming. A second sequence, ‘The House of Rest’, is a history in 9 poems of Josephine Butler, (1828-1906) a pioneering feminist activist. There are also tender poems about family and mental health. Available now.

    We Have to Leave the Earth
  • Robert Seatter takes us on a personal and poetic trail of Sir John Soane’s Museum, capturing the tragic story of the man who created it and the eclectic collection he gathered within its walls. Pre-order now

    “The poems move lightly, not just from room to room, but between the chambers of the heart... to doors that might let in the rivers of the world.” – Imtiaz Dharker
