Reviews

Red Sky

A few poems that stood out to me included ...

Lizzie Holden's "Light Switch," in the devastating subtlety with which it limns a child abuse scenario from the child victim's perspective; and Carolyn Dahl's "Flower Girl Dress," 

Jenna Lee

 AUTHOR AND POET
 

The Emma Press Anthology of Love is a linguistic treasure trove of love in all its forms – platonic, sexual, intimate, absurd and existential. Each of the 65 poets write of love in a manner which is simultaneously unique and mutual. Such is the strength of this anthology, whose root concept of love makes for a heart-felt read, it is as though the poems are written just for you.

CUCKOO REVIEW

From the Bottom of the Wishing Well

Desperate and frightening though the subject matter is, Holden avoids falling into the traps of voyeurism or sensationalism. A magnificent sequence.

Richard Skinner  
JUDGE OF PAPER SWANS PRESS 2019 PAMPHLET PRIZE

Live performance at the Troubadour, London

"Beautifully sculpted poems, with a precise, chiselling delivery."
