I woke up this morning to my postman bringing me my copies of Exposure, the prose poetry and microfiction anthology I co-edited with Jan Fortune-Wood last year. The copies look beautiful, and for a moment I felt much like a proud parent must when they leave their child at the school gates on their first day at school. Exposure, you are now in the world!
I am so proud of this anthology; the pieces inside are some of the best short pieces I have read in my many years of researching the genres of prose poetry and microfiction. It was a lot of hard work – the submissions we received were well into the thousands – but was all worth it! Congratulations to everyone whose work is inside.

Don’t forget that I’m reading at Hay Festival this Sunday, 6th June. It’s part of an event based around ‘coming of age’ novels, so I’ll be reading with Stephen May, author of Tag (Cinnamon Press), and Elaine Walker, author of The Horses (Cinnamon Press), and answering some questions from Jan Fortune-Wood, who is editor at Cinnamon Press.
It starts at 11am in the Welsh Literature marquee on the main festival site, and best of all, it’s free entry. See you there!
The Schoolboy has been selected for the Aur Pur/Pure Gold library promotion, which is great news. To read more about Aur Pur, click here
