Three talented Welsh writers who have all recently released poetry collections.
Susie Wild lived in Swansea for years, but these days she calls Cardiff home. Her first collection Better Houses introduces a poet with a nomadic spirit. She tramps with humour, love, and loss across the UK, even the globe, seeking a place to call home. She has performed at Glastonbury, Hay Festival, Green Man Festival, and the Dylan Weekend.
Emily Blewitt was born in Carmarthen, Wales. She has published poetry in The Rialto, Ambit, Poetry Wales, The Interpreter’s House, Furies, Hinterland, Brittle Star, and Cheval. The title poem from her debut Seren collection, This Is Not a Rescue, was Highly Commended in the 2017 Forward Prize anthology.
Natalie Ann Holborow is a Swansea-born writer of poetry and fiction. Her debut collection And Suddenly You Find Yourself was published with Parthian in March 2017. The poems explore what it means to be human: where the mythological meets the modern, where fairytales, family and revenge collide, and a haunting mix of love, loss, desire, fear and revenge that is unafraid to unsettle the reader.
