Might we be the first to say ho-ho-ho?

Published on Tuesday 12 September 2017

Hot off the press are Christmas Crackers and Christmas Garland, the first titles in our gorgeous ‘Christmas Collection’ – a suite of pamphlets for the festive season, guaranteed to add sparkle and beauty to every celebration.

These first two titles feature brand new poems by some of the leading poets writing today – from this year’s TS Eliot prize winner Jacob Polley to New Generation poet Tara Bergin and Oxford Professor of Poetry Simon Armitage.

The poems in Christmas Crackers range from the surreal to the tenderly nostalgic, taking in the perils of an over-crowded shopping mall and the bah… humbug of Christmas enjoyed in glorious solitude. Christmas Garland celebrates the part played by nature in our festive celebrations – from a fall of snow to the spare beauty of pale blossom on a blackthorn bush.

Watch this space for our other Christmas titles which will be arriving very soon: Christmas Stocking and Fourteen Festive Sonnets, as well as two seasonal short stories: Gift of the Old One, and Holly and Ivy.

"By the way I have become almost Evangelical about the pamphlets! Everyone I know has got one. I’m just stopping short of thrusting them on people I don’t know but who look as if they need a poetry break."Liz O’Sullivan, Dovegreyreader Chapter, Candlestick Collective
