slantedchristmas-1cover2-721x1024’12 Slanted Poems for Christmas’, the new and first anthology from Ink, Sweat & Tears will be launched at The Book Hive on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 6.30pm

With readings from George Szirtes, Julia Webb, Bethany W Pope, Moniza Alvi and Andrea Holland.

Now let us present to you . . . contemporary scenes of domestic gothic; of family tenderness and detachment; of a green jelly tsunami engulfing a tinseled high street. It snows, bankers gorge on chocolate coins and the Salvation Army fights to play in time.

This is not the advertised Christmas.

Twelve shiny new poems from Moniza Alvi, Carrie Etter, WN Herbert, Andrea Holland, Ira Lightman, Bobby Parker, Bethany W Pope, Penelope Shuttle, George Szirtes, Tim Turnbull, Julia Webb and Luke Wright.
