Poem in The Emma Press Anthology of Love

Here’s another cracking anthology – which I’m happy to have a poem in – from the folks at The Emma Press. It’s a gem of a book packed with a lively variety of poems and Emma Wright’s brilliant artwork.

Here’s the blurb: “Building on the success of 2015’s Mildly Erotic Verse, this book explores the diversity of modern romance. Often awkward, never perfect, romantic encounters and relationships are rooted in our own contemporary world of Tinder, Twitter and TV dinners. But they are also part of an enduring tradition: the cornerstone of our common humanity. In this book, fifty-six fresh, diverse and original voices speak to what love means right here, right now, bridging the gap between Hollywood imagery and modern lived experience.”

Two poems in ‘DIVERSIFLY – Poetry and Art on Britain’s Urban Birds’

This is a gorgeous new anthology of poetry and artwork from Fair Acre Press and I’m happy to have two poems included.

“In our modern urban landscapes, birds, and the intersections of their lives with ours, are the most common and obvious manifestations of nature, in all its adaptability and indomitability. DIVERSIFLY catalogues this beautifully in both words and images, with the poetry, from both established names and new, never seeking to separate the manmade and the natural, but instead letting the two bleed into each other. In turns funny, poignant, angry and joyous, DIVERSIFLY is a celebration of the wild world just beyond our front doors.” – Matt Merritt, Poet and Editor of Birdwatching Magazine.
