Little Piece of Harm

Posted on 28th March 2021 in Publications

My latest collection of poems is available from Longbarrow Press.  Little Piece of Harm is a narrative sequence that focuses on 24 hours in the life of a city that has been shut down in the aftermath of a shooting. As this act of violence ramifies outwards, the sequence explores the geographical reach of Sheffield – its urban settings and its rural landmarks – and eavesdrops on the city’s conversations.  Pete, our narrator, comes into contact with a range of people who reflect on this public killing in relation to private moments of trauma and harm. Furthermore, Pete has his own issues that he reflects on as day bleeds into night.

Little Piece of Harm is available to order for £5 from the Longbarrow Press site here.
