Free poetry! There’s almost too much of it these days. How am I going to convince people to pay £9.95 when my book comes out in two weeks when you can read the new issues of Prac Crit and Poetry and Poems in Which and an ebook by Martha Sprackland about sharks all completely free??? Still, as a hard-up reader I can’t pretend I don’t appreciate it. And if all these talented people are giving away such amazing poems for nothing, the least we can do is celebrate the fact and make sure free doesn’t mean undervalued.
Which brings me to the super-talented group of New North Poets I mentored last year for NWN and the Poetry School. Kathleen Bainbridge Moran, David Borrott, Jared Carnie, Tom Cleary, James Giddings and Jasmine Simms are very much writers to watch, and have just published this beautiful FREE e-book called, rather wonderfully, All That’s Ever Happened.
Yours for a bargain zero pence. Please click, enjoy and share.
