Hello poetry lovers.
To celebrate National Poetry Day we have a special offer, some events and an announcement or three.
For today only our anthology of long narrative poems The Other Side of Sleep is on offer at £5 (reduced from £9.99) if bought direct from us online
If you are at Free Verse Poetry Book Fair on Saturday at Conway Hall come and say hello – we have a stall, and are reading at 4.30 in the Garden Cafe on Red Lion Square (Lisa Kelly, Math Jones, Sarah James and Jeremy Dixon)
or the BBC’s Strong Language Festival in Hull (drop by the pop up poetry bookshop today through to Sunday)
You can get a copy of TOSOS for £5 if bought with another Arachne Press Poetry Book at either event.
Looking forward, we have been inviting people whose work we have published in anthologies like TOSOS, to send us their collections.
Quite a few people have, and at the moment we have agreement, in principle, to publish the following
Kate Foley A Gift of Rivers (definite, April)
Cathy Bryant The Colour of Not Knowing
Jeremy Dixon In Retail
We are still toying with the idea of what I think of as a ‘short fat anthology’ – maximum of 5 poets, multiple poems from each – this is aimed at emerging poet who haven’t got enough work for a collection yet – so exciting new voices on the cusp of greatness!
