Description

"Never trust a scarecrow wearing shades after dark"

Penelope Shuttle & John Greening read from Heath
‘Alone on the heath, under the constellations of aircraft holding patterns, and with only these eloquent, shape-shifting poems as our guide, we encounter highwaymen, witches and ghosts, follow the tracks of the last wolf in England, and find ourselves incanting the heath’s calendar of spells and enchantments. Heath speaks to us, sings its own centuries-old song of seasons; both born and raised in its shadow, Shuttle and Greening’s deep connection of memory to this place brings forth a remarkable cycle of magical and bitter-sweet poems.’

'Alison Brackenbury loves, lives, hymns and rhymes the natural world and its people like no other poet.' - National Poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke

Melanie Branton, the pleasures of her poetry are many and not least her seemingly effortless capacity to surprise and delight.’ – Colin Brown, Poetry Can
