Black and Blue 

We first published Cathy Galvin's collection in 2014. The first edition sold out rapidly and we are now publishing a new and revised edition.


Praise for Black and Blue:

David Morley: Cathy Galvin's sequence moves brilliantly...with drama, immediacy and power.

David Almond: ...wonderful. So beautiful and moving: family, grief, childhood, angels, birds...The impulse to make sense of our heritage and our childhoods, to turn our family stories into things of beauty. Black and Blue is a gorgeous, sacramental thing.

GRADUAL is the second collection by poet and critic Andrew McCulloch. At its heart are translations of six Holy Sonnets, based on verses from the psalms and attributed to Jean Racine. Other, original poems in the collection celebrate another gathering holiness - that of the heart's affection.

'These beautiful translations of the 'Holy Sonnets, awe-filled and rapturous, command an easy, natural flow which finds its own counterpart in McCulloch's own poems: both voices are demotic, musical and full of wonder.' Rachel Nadar.

PUBLISHED ON NOVEMBER 17th and available now, post free.

Rough Translation is a new collection by Cathy Galvin that explores through legend and memory, the natural world and personal emotion, the poet's roots in Ireland and their echoes in present day life in England. It is a worthy successor to Black and Blue, called by the Huffington Post, 'a perfectly formed masterclass in poetic risk-taking...'

The Death of Wisdom Smith, Prince of Gypsies

is a new pamphlet by David Morley that will be launched in London in September.

A compelling sequence of poems narrates the death and funeral of Wisdom Smith, Prince of Gypsies (and friend of the poet, John Clare). A fusion of English and Romani brings to wonderful life the events, the feasting and mourning, of April 1839, when gypsies from all over the country converged on Rutland for the funeral of their Prince. 

'He holds our world up to a language mostly kept secret; the refraction of the familiar is dizzying and often moving.' Les Murray

Earlier this year, David Morley won both the prestigious Ted Hughes Award for New Poetry and a Cholmondley Award for Poetry.

The new pamphlet can be ordered now, post free, by selecting it on the buy menu opposite.
