Here’s what the reviewers had to say – ‘The Kingdom’ has enhanced my admiration for this rapidly maturing poet. Still a formidable champion of social and political issues, his approach is never didactic and he writes with a supreme mastery of language and of form and structure”. Mick Yates: Poet Winner of the Geoff Stevens Poetry Prize. – Matt Duggan’s ‘Kingdom’ is one of profound change. The ‘Liars, Lobbyists, and Looters’ rule. Democracy has become ‘ a flammable effigy’ Mother Earth has been broken. Pan ‘subjugated’ and the heartbeat of a city is ‘fading’. Duggan challenges his readers to wake up and take note by setting ‘the guns off inside’ our heads. Duggan is one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in contemporary poetry. Kingdom will undoubtedly add to his growing reputation. - Nigel Kent Poet and Author of ‘Saudade’ Hedgehog Poetry Press

Yes – but a real world on which this poet’s magic touch confers so many extra dimensions: bluebell woods, cherry blossom and crows are here immediately as themselves, yet sit alongside and bleed into alchemy, necromancy and a grimoire. Once read, these poems of desire and regret, like Katerina’s Burr itself, will be snagged fast for weeks in your mind. What glorious words! What tear-washed colour! What compelling music!’ – Charles Johnson ISBN 978-1-9160381-3-4 36 pages. Price includes postage and packing to UK.

Swn y Morloi by Hannah Stone
Part travelogue, part memoir; the poems in Swn y Morloi are inspired by Hannah’s frequent visits to the far west of Pembrokeshire where, once each year the author rents a small cottage and walks the wild coastal paths. The Pencaer Peninsula has all the transience of liminal coastlines, and a Millenia of back history with a plethora of standing stones and other evidence of ancient settlement, the unknown rites and rituals of ancient peoples, the often elusive wildlife which comes alive when the tourists disappear. Hannah describes the collection as a kinesthetic sequence; poetry written from within the landscape. Published by Maytree Press 2019. Includes Postage and packing and free art card featuring cover painting, The Sound of Seals by David Coldwell.
