This year has been fairly quiet on the publishing front, but some very good things have happened.
I’ve had a poem in the new Dark Mountain anthology, a truly beautiful book, which features poets artists and writers in whose company I’m honoured to appear (Susan Richardson, Em Strang, Roselle Angwin, and many many others). There’s a link to the poem, Explaining a Few Things to Neruda on the page.
There’s an essay on my home patch in this year’s Stravaig,
and a poem, Lost Village, in the spring edition of Northwords Now.
And fnally, after reviewing some pamphlets published by the wonderful Stewed Rhubarb Press,
I had the enormous pleasure of watching them win the Callum McDonald Memorial Award. Congratulations to the team of Rachel McCrum and James T Harding!
