Petrol, Cyan, Electric

PCE titleCounting down to the publication of my new short collection, with the launch coming up in Grasmere on 18th May. Very exciting to be working with Peter Sansom and his lovely team at the Poetry Business on final preparations for the collection, which was chosen by Simon Armitage as one of the winners in the PB Book and Pamphlet competition. Congratulations to fellow winners Emma Danes, David Attwooll, and David Grubb with commendations for Ben Wilkinson and Steve Ely.

As the title suggests, there’s a touch of blue running through these poems, which have been inspired by things as diverse as electricity pylons, trawler fishing and Glenn Miller’s ‘In The Mood’.
