Restorations, by Rosalind Hudis, takes the reader on a journey into what it means to preserve – a monument, a moment, a life-story, a poppy. It’s about the hunger to possess and the need to let go. ‘If a poem is like a picture, these are history paintings, rich in human detail and many-layered in their brushwork’ (Matthew Francis)
Isabel Galleymore’s first collection, Significant Other, won the John Pollard Foundation International Poetry Prize in 2020 and was shortlisted for the Forward Best First Collection Prize and Seamus Heaney First Collection Prize. Her pamphlet, Cyanic Pollens, is based on her residency in the Peruvian Amazon. She lectures at the University of Birmingham.
