The other poets are: Jim Carruth, Hazel Frew, Ellen McAteer. If I’ve mastered this less than onerous technical task, you can go back and click on their names to find out more about them.

The broadsheet fourfold is the love child of the fine poet and artist Kathrine Sowerby. It’s an inspiring idea, and a splendid collection of poems to read (as are fourfold 1, 2 & 3). My contribution is a set of poems from the project I’ve been working on recently. They are: Mother of Sound, The Shanties, Patience, and Our Roads Rise to Meet Us.

Tears in the Fence

My poem ‘This is What the Kid Said’ is now out in the latest issue of Tears in the Fence. titf 60 It’s another poem from my Google Translate sequence. Actually, it has become more than a sequence. It’s probably a project now. I really should find a title for it, I suppose. Tears in the Fence is an international journal of great repute, and I am naturally delighted to become one of its poets. You can find out more here. The rest of the line-up goes like this:
