The Lyrebird: a chapbook coming soon

Published : Monday, January 10, 2011 | Label:

In May or June (2011) Picaro Press will bring out a small chapbook of my poems, probably called The Lyrebird. The book will appear in their Wagtail series, thirty page booklets that aim to steer readers to a poet’s work by showcasing a selection of published and new poems,a nd offering them at a very low price. I feel honoured to be asked to contribute a volume to the series, which includes volumes by our finest poets.

I hope to include a few poems from Fire Diary, along with some poems published in journals, but not in my first collection, and some brand new work. I’m working on the selection even as we speak.

The chapbook comes at a nice time for me: Fire Diary, my first collection (excluding my spoken word collection, The Road South) ahs been out since November 2010, and I’m working up a second collection of new work, probably called Body Copy, to come out in 2012.
