Re-cycling Poetry: A Feature and A Review

It's not often you get to turn the tables on an editor... but Jacqueline Downs, who edited The Cinema of Sally Potter, asked if I would workshop a poem with her for For Books' Sake -- and the result of what was an amazing experience is articulated in her brilliant, and very brave, article here (complete with workshopped poem!). Also turning the tables (in a sense) was the opportunity to review (and praise to the skies) Jo Shapcott's Of Mutability, which engages with ecology from the level of the cell to the level of the cosmos, for Hand+Star: Jo was the judge for the Eric Gregory award the year I won, which was particularly exciting as I was a huge fan of her work.
