An appreciative audience met together on Thursday 23 March to celebrate two excellent poetry pamphlets, winners of our 2022 Poetry Pamphlet Award. Concrete Sea by EA Griffiths and Treelight by Yvonne Baker explore landscape and innerscapte, each in disttinctive ways.
Walking us through a woodland with all the senses open and connecting inner and outer experience, Treelight is, as Myra Schneider says,
lyrical and spiritual … a considerable achievement
Whilst Concrete Sea interweaves short, intense lyrical pieces with concrete poems that play with form and expand our view of poetry so that:
we emerge with the sense of another’s heart-print.
