hand-bound and printed on recycled sugar paper with board covers
£6 + £1.50 postage
JENNIFER COPLEY lives in Barrow-in-Furness in her grandmother’s house, a large draughty Victorian pile that has informed much of her poetry. She is the author of 3 full collections of poetry and 4 pamphlets, her last being Sisters published by Smokestack in 2013. U.A. Fanthorpe has described her work as ‘urgent, visceral, written out of a fierce commitment to truth’. Carol Rumens says, ‘There is a Chagall-like, magical-realist quality to Copley’s delicate shape-shifting’ and W.N. Herbert comments that her work is ‘quietly life-enhancing, full of real rewards and surprising consolations’. She says ‘I must tell stories. Stories about people (or animals) in improbable situations. I’m interested in how they react and how they resolve (or don’t) the things they face.’
Jennifer’s 2012 pamphlet, Mr Trickfeather, is also available from Like This Press.
