A Slow Combusting Hymn is a brand new, hot-off-the-press poetry anthology featuring poetry from and about Newcastle and the Hunter Region , edited by the dynamic duo Jean Kent and Kit Kelen. The book's cover features a beautiful painting by local artist Claire Martin. I am very proud to have a number of poemsincluded in this anthology, not least of which because of the illustrious company: the anthology includes some seriously amazing poets, and has been lovingly organised and edited by Jean and Kit, who have, as you might expect, done a wonderful job.
The book will be launched by Rosemarie Milsom on Saturday, August 9th, 10:30 for 11 am at The Lovett Gallery, City Library, Laman St, Newcastle. The event is open to the public, but you need to RSVP at the event page or directly to Jean no later than August 6th: https://www.facebook.com/events/252310644967858/?source=1
