Rosie Garland might be better known as Mslexia Prize winning author of The Palace of Curiosities and Vixen, but she is also a poet who skillfully treads the line between performance and the lyric. Her new collection, As In Judy (Flapjack Press, 2016) is as inventive and politically engaged as her previous body of work, and ‘imagines the inner and outer landscapes we all inhabit with eloquence and grace’.

*

Jodie Hollander is an American poet visiting the UK to launch her first full collection of poems, My Dark Horses, from hot new poetry imprint, Pavilion Poetry. Interspersed with versions of Rimbaud, and always alert to the surreal comedy of the human condition, these powerful and immediate poems chart with huge passion, musicality and insight a complex journey towards familial understanding and reconciliation.

Witty and compelling, Charlotte Wetton’s debut pamphlet, I Refuse to Turn into a Hatstand (Calder Valley Poets), shows a young poet skillfully in charge of her material. Her spoken word album Body Politic was released in 2012.

and we will make love
on the stone flags, on the dirt of the yard,
until dusk falls, salt stiffens on cooling skin,
and the cicadas sing and sing until death.’

(Charlotte Wetton ‘In Mexico’)
