Joint winner of the 2019 Live Canon Poetry Pamphlet Competition, How High Did She Fly, contains 24 poems. Half of the pieces are inspired by Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, a play which had a powerful effect on me at 16; 30 years later, I decided to take another look and respond to some of its themes: women, voices, silence, love, sex and flight. Woven in between these are poems written at different times which are, I hope, create a conversation through and across the book. You can read two of the poems below, and if you buy a copy from me – or the bundle, below, with my collection – I will donate £1 from each sale to Samaritans:
I’m also bundling How High Did She Fly with my poetry collection, Terms and Conditions, for a special discount price of £15 – with £1 donated to Samaritans.
