I’ve been busy for the last couple of Fridays with poetry related activities in Aldeburgh and North Wales so haven’t had a chance to share a Friday poet recently. I’ve come back from Wales with Becky Cherriman’s glorious Empires of Clay. It is so exciting to get my hands on this book. There is sometihng about the physicality of turning the pages which you just don’t get from swiping a screen and the cover is even more lovely in real life than it is electronically. And even though I know the poems afer working with Becky, they still tempt me back for another read.
