I just received these in the post: SWELLS IN TINY ROOMS, my new chapbook of poems. And I couldn’t stop crying … for all the right reasons. They’re beautiful! Y0u can still order your copy through Blank Rune Press or its publisher Valli Poole.
New chapbook of poetry out now – Swells in Tiny Rooms by Blank Rune Press!
This is what my publisher says about it: “This is a sublimely honest suite of poems – there’s a tug on the lead to the heart strings in these works – this press is extremely lucky and proud to be the publisher of such worthy writing.”
