I have been reading and studying a lot of poetry recently for my amusement and education.  Here are the four books currently on the go.


Mesopotamia by Damian Smyth

Yellow Tulips

Yellow Tulips by James Fenton
Faber & Faber

New Selected Poems

New Selected Poems by Carol Ann Duffy

For education purposes, I have gone back to basics and read (with active participation in the writing exercises), this guide:

Write Poetry and Get it Published: Teach Yourself

Write Poetry (And Get It Published) by Matthew Sweeney & John Hartley Williams.
Teach Yourself

Some interesting new ideas (and hopefully completed work) coming out of the JC head (2 pieces have been accepted already for publication).

Happy to receive, review and promote new poetry books on this site.
