Happy Christmas everyone!

The iconic and gorgeously poetic Candlestick Press have published six titles for the Christmas season. Four of them poetry, Christmas Garland, Christmas Crackers, Fourteen Festive Sonnets and Christmas Stocking. I was lucky enough to have edited the sonnet collection and what a joy it was to choose the poems, and help launch the title in Leeds and Nottingham. I tried to include poetry that felt wintry, had thoughts of home and loss, might make the reader smile, but finishing with a sonnet that is full of hope. 

Happy Christmas everyone.
