My poetry included in thE NEW RIVER PRESS YEARBOOK:
WHEN THEY START TO LOVE YOU AS A MACHINE YOU SHOULD RUN
“Poetry is often written in the wake of some life changing moment. Today life is changing in peculiar ways. Poems help us make new sense of right now - expressing how we feel about our place in the world and how we imagine that place can change. The New River Press yearbook offers instructions for hope.
This is not so much an anthology as the snapshot of this point in history captured from an array of emotional perspectives. Over two-hundred poets distil the feelings and moods of our time. Romance, technology, war, sex, death, and Brexit all provoke works of beauty that provide oblique revelations.
This yearbook is far reaching. Bigger and bolder than the first New River Press yearbook including new work by just over 200 poets from established names such as Hugo Williams, Michael Horowitz, Jeremy Reed, and Greta Bellamacina to new poets who are being published for the first time in these pages.
Andre Breton’s description of poetry, most of all, speaks to the hope of this collection: DREAMING WITH YOUR EYES OPEN. Let this collection open your eyes to hundreds of new dreams.”
