Coming Soon: Lung Jazz

Lung Jazz: Young British Poets for Oxfam (Cinnamon Press 2012) will be released in May and features my poem In the Mist. It has a foreword by David Lehman and the editors, Todd Swift and Kim Lockwood.

I am always amazed when editors manage to wade through hundreds of submissions to hone it down to an anthology. It is a hard process that I have been involved with on both sides of the fence, as an editor and poet. Todd and Kim have done a great job and have brought together such names as Helen Mort, Clare Pollard, Chris McCabe, Tom Weir, Kathryn Simmonds, Owen Sheers, Luke Kennard, Nathan Hamilton and Inua Ellams to name a few. I am proud to be amongst my contemporaries and to be placed within the wave of Young British Poets. More importantly, all the profits from this anthology go to Oxfam. So, dig your hands into your pockets and order it early for £6.38 rather than the RRP of £8.99, you can buy it from Amazon.
