To Be Published Untamed - An Anthology Of South West Poets & Visual Artists
In 2003 Wylde Publications published an anthology collection of poems by a group calling themselves Moor Poets; the book contained ‘a broad range’ of work by 35 writers. Twenty years later Wylde will be publishing a new anthology. The poets are drawn from across the South West, two of whom Julie-ann Rowell and Jennie Osborne, were featured in the original collection. Poetry aside, one of the startling aspects of the original book was the wraparound colour painting by the celebrated artist/ceramicist Petra Tilly.
This fusion of the visual and the written word is carried through in the 2023 collection Untamed – each poem will be ‘partnered’ with an image (photograph, painting, film, digital graphic, wood cut). Publication date is expected to be November 2023. Poets who have been invited and agreed their involvement are: Veronica Aaronson, Ian Royce Chamberlain, Steve Day, Hélène Demetriades, Roger Philip Dennis, Liz Diamond, Virginia Griem, Rosie Jackson, Phil Madden, Patrice Naiambania, Jennie Osborne, Alasdair Paterson, Sue Proffitt, Julie-ann Rowell, James Stallard, Julie Tippetts, Mama Tokus, Marc Woodward, Don Pearson.
