"Margot Farrington's poems have the intensity, tension, and still momentum of a bowstring, or an arrow in the target."Dennis Nurkse
To a vivid sense of the textures of place, Robert Minhinnick brings the internationalism of twenty-five years' work in the environmental movement, an awareness of the dramas of the natural and human world that is profoundly political but never polemical.
Margot Farrington is the author of two collections of poetry, and her poems have been included in several anthologies. Other writings include essays, and reviews of poetry books and art exhibitions. Steeped in theater, she has widely read and performed her work, both as a poet and as a storyteller.
Robert Minhinnick is the author of numerous books of poetry including After the Hurricane, Hey Fatman, The Looters, and The Dinosaur Park. He has published two collections of essays, Watching the Fire Eater, winner of the 1993 Arts Council of Wales Book of the Year Award, and Badlands. His book To Babel and Back won the 2006 Wales Book of the Year Award and his debut novel, Sea Holly, was shortlisted for the 2008 Ondaajte Prize. (booksense)
