Review of Lapstrake

I did another review for Three Drops from a Cauldron…


… And it’s definitely a goodie. Read my review over at the Three Drops site.

Until the next time –



‘Eye, Tongue, Machinus’ – My first pamphlet

It’s official (and has been for quite some time but I’ve been a little slow at blogging about it) – my debut pamphlet ‘Eye, Tongue, Machinus’ will be being launched later this year with Goya Press, a new poetry and fiction press based in Manchester.


Expect weird tales of exposed tongues, system shut downs, and an instructional take on how to be truly alone.

I’m really excited – especially considering the tone of the pamphlet. I write all sorts of things, but I’m super proud that my very first wee collection will be a scary one. Huzzah!

I’m currently working through a few edits on a few of the poems. Next stop – illustrations and the cover! I’ll bring more updates as they happen.

Here’s to a world of weirdness.

Resident Blogger for Mud Press

Well hello there!

Have you discovered Mud Press? It’s a kalaidoscope of wickedness, power, aesthetic glory, meaning, and curiosity. It’s a Press which creates anthologies to rub your face on, and I’m now their resident Blogger!


Georgina (over at Mud) wrote a stupendously exciting blog post about my involvement yesterday, and you can read it here. As Mud’s resident Wordsmithy Wizard I’ll be helping to raise awareness of the wonderful things Mud does, and who knows what else.

And believe me, there’s going to be LOTS to talk about. 🙂

Speak soon –

Caroline 🙂
