New Poems! Publications 2020

A bit of an update on some recent / upcoming publications. But first, a poem of mine from Tears in the Fence 71 published just last month:

In addition to this, the magazine features two other poems, ‘A study has shown’ and ‘Confessional’, both of which I hope will soon feature in a pamphlet or first collection, once I get round to putting it together and submitting it!

I also have a new poem forthcoming in the ever-excellent Anthropocene later this year, and some previously published poems featuring on another website that I am not allowed to talk about (yet).

That’s it for now, but hoping to have a few more things out in the world soon – I certainly have plenty of new writing to go around.

Bull on Poetry Book Society, and some Publication News

Last month I was very excited to see that Bull was listed on the Poetry Book Society’s website as a Summer 2019 selection! It has now sold out, but I still have two copies left so get in touch with me directly if you would still like to buy one.

In other news, I have two new sequences due for publication in late July/August in Stride and new online journal, Anthropocene, run by the excellent Charlie Baylis.

Anthropocene seems like a really exciting new journal, and already has poems live by Dominic Leonard, Robert Sheppard and Leela Soma, all of which I have enjoyed, so I’m really happy to have had some work accepted.

The publication in Stride will be under the guest-editorship of Martin Stannard, who provided a flattering endorsement quote for Bull, and whose collection poems for the young at heart I read recently and loved. So, once again, a great publication that I’m very pleased about.
