To The Lighthouse


For those interested, my review of the last four poets to produce pamphlets as part of Tall-Lighthouse's Pilot series (published 18 younger poets over the course of three years) is up now at Stride magazine. Charlotte Runcie, Richard O'Brien, Ailbhe Darcy and Simon Pomery - all very different writers, and all names to look out for in the future, not only when their first full collections appear, but when the annual Society of Authors' Eric Gregory Awards are announced in the coming years, no doubt.

Interesting to see what you thought of Ailbhe Darcy's work - as well as the rest. Congrats on making the Iota Competition shortlist - I'll be rooting for you!
