The Poetry Pharmacy Book Description:

'Truly a marvellous collection ... There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder - the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss' Stephen Fry As heard on BBC Radio 4, the essential prescriptions from William Sieghart's poetic dispensary Sometimes only a poem will do. These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and a chance to realize - I'm not the only one who feels like this. In the years since he first had the idea of prescribing short, powerful poems for all manner of spiritual ailments, William Sieghart has taken his Poetry Pharmacy around the length and breadth of Britain, into the pages of the Guardian, onto BBC Radio 4 and onto the television, honing his prescriptions all the time. This pocket-sized book presents the most essential poems in his dispensary: those which, again and again, have really shown themselves to work. Whether you are suffering from loneliness, lack of courage, heartbreak, hopelessness, or even from an excess of ego, there is something here to ease your pain. 'The book is delightful; it rightly resituates poetryin relation to its biggest and most serious task: helping us to live and diewell' Alain de Botton

A West Coast Psalter Book Description:

Maggie Mackay takes the reader on journeys, where everything takes its place with magic and mystery, whether in Ceasg's Ghazal, a mermaid of Scottish folklore, or the 'girlie-girls' on a bus, to Humphry Davy finding pleasure in inhaling nitrous oxide gas. In this marvellous cabinet-of-curiosities of a collection, there is a polecat as mother 'wielding an iron, as a wife might, pressing office-shirts' or shepherds with 'sea salt in their beards', as the poet inhabits the skins of the strangest of creatures. Here is a poet writing with a wild music, with energy and passion, in a sensuous and entertaining celebration of a book. Deborah Alma, poet, founder, The Poetry Pharmacy Just as the opening image's sheets balloon "like tides, like sails", these poems transport the reader across the world and through history, inviting us into childhood memories, wonder-filled glimpses of nature and the knack of many trades and crafts. The lines are alive with breath-taking imagery, atmospheric tones and beautiful, joyous and energetic, yet controlled, sounds and emotions. Like the suitcase in 'Sisters' Song', Mackay's poetry "brims with stories/ and cotton, needles and threads" that invite us to "keek around the door into dawn's blether". "Waves on waves linger beyond the curved earth", and the narrative arcs and striking gathering of poems in this rich selection. A West Coast Psalter is a fabulous debut collection and a distinctive, unforgettable read.' S.A.Leavesley, editor, V Press A West Coast Psalter is one of those magical collections in which the personal and the geographical combine seamlessly to create a clear, striking narrative of home. There are women here who climb up from their own history, over the rocks and waves of their ancestral landscape, speaking with the rhythms of their past to seize their future. These are crafted, careful, evocative poems in which Mackay brings the full weight of her skill as a poet. Throughout this collection a sense of being rooted wrestles with the desire to fly away and in the middle of it all: home, hearth, the warmth of kith and kin against the cold night. This is a collection I will return to. Wendy Pratt, poet, freelance writer
