Natasha Dahlberg lives in Brighton;
she is an actor, writer and jewellery designer
Natasha's poems are wittily autobiographical,
honest and humorous.
They have a jaunty seriousness
and their rhymes work a treat.
Sometimes they are
chatty & informal
but they are always precise & exact.
The book is beautifully presented
with illustrations by Natasha herself.

Mercury in Retrograde is her first volume of poetry.



Andrew's new book
of photographs
and poems
develops the theme
of 'flight',
through
extraordinary shots
not only of birds
& butterflies
but also of leaping fish,
frogs and squirrels,
shooting stars
and standing stones.
Andrew's poems
address the theme
by speaking directly
to the animal in question
in a way which brings
a new dimension to the photographs they accompany.

Iolo Williams said
of Andrew's previous book
Hill and Dale that it was
"full of truly stunning photographs:
I urge you to buy this book!"

For some of us,
Bob Dylan's songs
have accompanied our lives
for as long as we can remember,
and their highlights
and their shadows
have echoed
good times as well as
bad times.
Mark Huband takes us
on a journey through
a life lived under the shadow
of songs from 1963
("Girl from the North Country")
to 2020
(
"Crossing the Rubicon").
His sonnets are rich
with imagery,
allusive and delightfully
elusive.

 

JLM Morton will read some of her recent work.
She celebrates both nature and the crisis which the natural world is facing; she finds wilderness, nonetheless, in countryside close at hand.

She has a rich control of language and register which makes her work memorable and worthy of much re-reading.

 

 

All these books and more, including Autumn special offers,
will be available for purchase on the night of our October reading event,
or online afterwards direct from Yew Tree Press
or via on our 'Big Cartel' page.

JLM Morton & Susie Hetherington

SENTIENT
A Litany for a Hedgerow

JLM Morton and Susie Hetherington
run wild with the hedgerow,
unveiling its secrets, naming its parts
and celebrating its part in our lives.
an important and intriguing sense of place and time.

Philip Rush

SPEED WELL BLUES
There and back again

'Is it just me or
are there more ravens these days,
croaking in the trees?'


More poems born
of walking the woods
jostle with memories
of Spain.

 

The three poets in Stroud Poets 2.10
see the world
in rewardingly different ways.

Olivier Huband's world is exuberant,
street-wise & combative
but it is not without humour;
Belinda Rimmer looks
through the lens of a photographer
to find juxtapositions and puzzles;
Andrew Stafford walks the hills
around Stroud and beyond
to meditate on the slow experience
of landscape.

DARK WOOD LIGHT
There and back again

'Each day we took the same route,
although we now alternated
between a clockwise
and an anti-clockwise direction.
Anti-clockwise seemed steeper.'
