My essay on Kathleen Jamie’s poem ‘The Wishing Tree’ is available to read on the Longbarrow Press website here. I wanted to write a piece on the processes of re-drafting. The two versions of Jamie’s piece that are out in the world offer an interesting route into the choices poets make when they come to revise their work.
There are many good pieces on the Longbarrow blog site that are worth looking at, featuring a range of authors and subjects. It’s worth a visit to see what thoughts and ideas the writers/poets are engaging with at the present time.
