I’m deleriously happy to announce that I have a new pamphlet collection of 26 poems due out very soon from Mariscat Press in Edinburgh. These are all poems written since my return to the UK and to my native Northumberland after four years away in Belgium.
It has been a great pleasure and privilege to work with Hamish Whyte and Diana Hendryon this collection. Robert Dalrymple has done an amazing design job on the pamphelt and I am honoured that the artist Brent Millar has allowed one of his artworks to be used for the cover image. Here it is:
For anyone who might be interested, here’s a flyer about the collection with details of Mariscat Press and how to go about ordering it, which I dearly hope you will:
MARISCAT PRESS – Latest
Richie McCaffery, First Hare
The Duke’s selling off his farmland
to the developers,
and still there’s nowhere
we seem to be able to live.
We move so much I sometimes
think we’re stolen goods.
I helped you spot your first hare.
This fact seems important now.
A new gathering of McCaffery’s pellucid poems of love, life
and family – imbued with a Northumbrian flavour.
Richie McCaffery is a poet, critic and independent scholar of Scottish
literature. He has published two collections with Nine Arches Press
and two pamphlets, including Spinning Plates (HappenStance 2012).
He lives in Alnwick, Northumberland.
