Graft Poetry's philosophy is simple: the very best in contemporary poetry at affordable prices. The poets to be published, in the first instance were at least, ones who had not previously published poetry collections but who seem to us to deserve to be better known in book form.
The first book we brought out in 2008 was the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Without a dog by Julia Deakin, and we are now pleased to announce Julia's second collection: Eleven Wonders. Other collections include works from Andrew Boobier, Nicholas Bielby, Adam Strickson, Chris Hardy and Chris Bridge.
We are pleased to announce the publication of Walking Through by Chris Bridge.
A life-time of devotion to poetry lies behind these well-crafted, deeply attentive poems, whether the focus is on the natural world or its human counterpart.
