Vertical Prose – Peter S Smith

50%_Vertical_Prose_Peter_S_SmithArtist Peter S Smith publishes his poems for the first time in this charming pocket sized chapbook. Smith draws his inspiration from Clive James’ recent quote in The Guardian (14:11:2015) “Lately I am seldom impressed by the kind of poetry that is just prose arranged vertically. I spent too much time learning how to arrange it horizontally.”

He studied Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art and Design (BA (Hons) Fine Art, 1969) and Art Education at Manchester (Post Graduate Certificate in Education,1970). In 1992 he gained an MA (Printmaking) at Wimbledon School of Art.
