On Fighting On

I’m very pleased that a poem I’d written in India in June is now in print and available to buy. Perfect as a socialist stocking filler.

‘On Fighting On’ is an anthology of selected poems from entries to The Bread And Roses Poetry Award 2017. The purpose of the award is to encourage poets to focus on themes which are meaningful to working class people and communities and to encourage those communities to engage more with poetry. Entrants were given the opportunity to deal broadly with working class life and culture and show commitment to the common people, the common good and the common music of poetry.

My poem, ‘Pillars’ is inspired by people I’ve met, mostly while working in the lift industry. I entered three poems and actually, I felt Pillars was the worst of the three – but hey.

You can buy a copy of the anthology here for a fiver plus postage.

Merry Christmas.

Thanks for reading.
Pete
