Aside

Watch out for Arachne Press poets being featured on LitWorld2  over the next few weeks, Tuesdays and Fridays. And I don’t know who! So I will be glued to the web, like a spider’s midday snack…

Thanks to Sarah James for hosting!

Film Poem – Sarah James – Model Child

We are experimenting with ways to keep YOU entertained and US in business.

Here is a contribution from the brilliant Sarah James, who seems to be able to turn her hand to just about anything! Model Child is from Vindication which has several other poems from Sarah in it, plus handsful of poems from Sarah Lawson, Jill Sharp, Elinor Brooks and Adrienne Silcock. You can buy Vindication direct from our webshop, and we’ll stick it straight in the post!

our most recently published poetry book

In all seriousness, we are racing to get all our poetry converted into ebooks so that self isolators (and those still putting themselves at risk in essential jobs for that matter) can get at them with ease. We didn’t do this before because we are perfectionists and we dont like what it does to the formatting – and we are reducing the price of all our ebooks to 99p for the duration. Someone else is setting that up for us so not sure if they are all sorted yet…

If you want to sample the wares, there are lots of videos and audio files dotted about the website, especially in the blog, and we are TODAY doing a virtual launch on our Facebook Page. join us from 2pm to about 3.30, for a mix of short stories and poems.
