112-page hardback collection. Rising from peat moorland north-west of Sheffield, the fast-flowing river Rivelin, and the valley it etched out, is the setting for many of Musselwhite’s poems. Contraflow harnesses these energies to carve its own rugged course, with its bottlenecks, bends and counter-currents: tales that slant, swell and spill. For more details, click here.
80-page hardback collection. In Tibetan, shul is the impression left after whatever made it has gone. Envies the Birds is the tarmac blueprint where a tower block once stood, “the channel worn through rock where a river runs in flood, the indentation in the grass where an animal slept last night”.

Skin by Chris Jones (2015)
96-page hardback collection. Skin reflects on the ties that bind us, taking in the complex layering of human relationships and the cells and tissues of the body itself. A book of bonds, reaching back, reaching out, Chris Jones’s second collection is a sensory exploration of the world we inhabit and try to make sense of. For more details, click here.
128-page hardback collection. The Navigators explores the portals that connect time and place, and meditates on the element of water, as it moves through both. The book opens with rain falling in the Lake District, flowing to the South Yorkshire waterways, before arriving at the North Sea. The Navigators is an affirmation of the reflection and regeneration that we find where waters meet and mingle. For more details, click here.
Steps by Mark Goodwin (2014)
144-page hardback collection. Mark Goodwin’s poetry isn’t merely about landscape… it manifests landscape, in its openness to all the encounters that engagement with landscape makes possible. – Norman Jope. Perception sharp as feeling itself, invention endlessly resolving into apt idiosyncrasies of form, the continuing development of Mark Goodwin is maybe the most exciting happening in British poetry today. – Jim Perrin.

The Footing by Angelina Ayers, James Caruth, Mark Goodwin, Rob Hindle, Andrew Hirst, Chris Jones and Fay Musselwhite (2013)
96-page hardback anthology of walking-themed poems. It is the best anthology of new work that I’ve read in years; anyone with an interest in contemporary British poetry should read it. – Billy Mills. What a book! Walking-writing as a collective act, as it should be. – Robert Macfarlane. For more details, click here.
West North East by Matthew Clegg (2013)
96-page hardback collection. Matthew Clegg’s first full-length collection is a book in three parts, each comprising a different approach to ideas of crisis, journey and imaginative crossing. Includes ‘The Walking Cure’ and the sequences ‘Edgelands’ and ‘Chinese Lanterns’. A great book. – Helen Mort. For more details, click here.
