A Hatchery of Shadows: Poems about Plants, Brain and the Imagination


‘I have read this anthology three times, with immense pleasure. Each reading has uncovered new meanings, new levels of enjoyment in the resources of free verse, handled with exceptional skill here by a bunch of fine poets. The anthology’s central themes — plants, the brain and imagination — are interwoven in a delightfully varied but unified verbal dance. The anthology is testimony to the unending capacity of the natural world to elicit wonder, curiosity, puzzlement and imaginative exploration.’

– Lucy Newlyn, Poet and Emeritus Fellow in English (St Edmund Hall, Oxford)

Haunted by Cycles of Return: Poems about Climate Change


‘I felt – as anyone reading them will – personally re-charged by their writers’ power of invention, the sense they give their reader or listener of the live imaginative mind in action, of the poet as dramatist as well as performer, of poetry’s unique capacity for long-distance travel within a short space of language.’

– Jane Draycott, Poet
