BUY The Year of the Rat (£2.60 + £1.20 P&P to UK Address)

The Year of the Rat is an exploration of fraught relationships—between outside forces, other people, and within oneself. The poems in this collection, while varying in style and length, all use vibrant imagery and simple language to strike at the heart of those commonplace battles, failures, and traumas which stick with us forever.

Gabriella Buckner is an American student striving for a career and life in the UK after completing her Creative Writing and Publishing MA from Kingston. She also paints, writes short stories and (starts to write) novels.

Sea Wall – Jamie Toy

BUY Sea Wall (£2.60 + £1.20 P&P to UK Address)

‘Sea Wall, by Jamie Toy addresses both the alienation we face politically today with the desire to overcome our impasses. By taking up desire in its contemporary form, the collection finds refuge in the internal noises of the body, wikipedia and the rivers of Europe. Sea Wall cuts through pessimism and nihilism to offer a potential way out and a creative expression of hope in a digital, political and intra-personal dark-age’

Event Horizon – Zakia Carpenter-Hall

Each poem is a vortex, an Event Horizon, a threshold, or point of no return.  Although Event Horizon is defined as a notational boundary around a black hole, these poems also explore “event” in a broader sense – the varying degrees to which an experience can change, destroy and reconfigure us and our lives.  Zakia Carpenter-Hall illustrates astrophysics and black hole theory using a variety of poetics, ranging from the use of fragmentation and repetition to surrealism and mirroring.  The problem with physics for non practitioners is often that “we cannot deliver its secrets with our hands”.  But this is a collection that makes the theoretical tangible and thereby brings us closer to ourselves.

Zakia Carpenter-Hall is a poet, teacher and avid learner from Minneapolis Minnesota who currently lives in England.  She is a winner of Poetry London’s inaugural Mentorship Scheme, has recently published in Callaloo Journal and Magma Magazine, and she is a Creative Writing MFA student at Kingston University.
