‘From the edge’ poetry magazine

Today is doubly exciting – an extract from my latest book Six-Count Jive (published by Lapwing Publications in March this year) is in Fiona Sinclair’s new ‘From The Edge‘ online poetry magazine. These are some of the darker stanzas about my PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) that I do not usually include in readings, in keeping with the magazine’s wish to give:

a platform for poetry that has something authentic to say. Whose subject matter is honest and perhaps gives voice to those at the edges of human experience. 

We want poetry that is not safe or contrived, that does not follow fashions or trends but is committed to the writer’s craft and exhibits a virtuoso use of language. 

Congratulations, Fiona Sinclair, on giving breath and space to poetry like this.
