The Kingdom – Matt Duggan

We are delighted to welcome Matt Duggan to Maytree Press with his third chapbook, The Kingdom.

Matt was born in Bristol in 1971 and now lives in Newport, Wales with his partner Kelly. His poems have appeared in many journals such as Potomac Review, Foxtrot Uniform, Dodging the Rain, Here Comes Everyone, Osiris Poetry Journal, The Blue Nib, The Poetry Village, The Journal, The Dawntreader, The High Window, The Ghost City Review, L’ Ephemere Review, Confluence, Marble and Polarity.

In 2015 Matt won the Erbacce Prize for Poetry with his first full collection of poems Dystopia 38.10. In 2017 Matt won the Into the Void Poetry Prize with his poem Elegy for Magdalene.

Matt’s two previous chapbooks, One Million Tiny Cuts (Clare Song Birds Publishing House) and A Season in Another World (Thirty West Publishing House) were both published both in 2018.

In 2019 Matt was one of the winners of the Naji Naaman Literary Prize (Honours for
Complete Works). His second full collection, Woodworm (Hedgehog Poetry Press) was
published in July 2019.

In The Kingdom we find the poet in reflective mood, re-visiting those places once travelled, catching again those moments that stain as memories before seamlessly entwining these images with stories from literature and mythology. The Kingdom is a truly remarkable collection and will be available from the 10 April 2020.

Three Trees Edition

We are delighted to introduce our very special, Three Trees Editions.

Three Trees Editions continue our aspiration to introduce poetry to a wider, more diverse audience, whilst maintaining our environmental ambitions.

Copies of Three Trees Edition pamphlets will be donated to a number of selected schools and groups chosen in consultation with the author. In addition, Maytree will also plant three native trees on publication.

Three Trees Editions have been selected from open submissions and we can’t wait to share these wonderful projects. Easily identifiable by their striking black and white designs, you might even want to start your very own collection.

We welcome contact from community groups and secondary schools wishing to find out more information.

Look out for more news coming soon, plus a very special cover reveal.
