Freedom Poems – launched on National Poetry Day by Poetrywivenhoe

Leave a comment

“This collection of new poetry by Essex poets celebrates Poetrywivenhoe’s 10th anniversary… The subject of ‘freedom’ follows the theme of this year’s National Poetry Day”. Great to get my hands on my copy, full of fab poems, and with a beautiful cover by artist Ella Johnston and design by Dunlin Press. Now available from the Wivenhoe Bookshop.


From the judges’ (Nancy Hughes and Alex Toms) comments

Freedom is woven tightly into the fabric of some of these poems – not always overtly, rather breathing quietly under the words, creating that magic we aspire to as readers and writers of poetry…

We trust you will find plenty to connect with in what follows – humour, imagery, sexiness, poignancy, pain, harshness, pace, adventures, reflections, mind-tickling cleverness of language, and freedom of creative spirit…
