Julia Copus returns to Ledbury with a phenomenal new collection, Girlhood, her first in seven years. There are autobiographical pieces, poems of history and imagination and, in The Great Unburned, there are witches overhead. ‘Her technical dexterity and way of seeing the past afresh reap rich dividends’ (The Guardian).
Robert Selby’s first collection The Coming-Down Time ‘has a large reach, but makes its themes feel intimate by catching them in language that is at once simple and capable of wonder. It’s a striking achievement: moving and intelligent and memorable’ (Andrew Motion).
Jonathan Davidson, Founder and Chief Executive of Writing West Midlands, is a poet, writer and literature activist. His latest poetry collection is A Commonplace – Apples, Bricks & Other People’s Poems.
