Christmas/ winter edition

So happy to have released the Christmas/ winter edition out there on 8/12/19.

This was a lot of work for the team with hundreds of excellent poems sent in. The Guest Readers, Polly Oliver, Preston Smith and Erin Russell, went over submissions with editor Matthew M C Smith compiling the edition.

We were extremely lucky to get stunning artwork from Swansea-based

artist Emma Bissonnet. Thank you Emma.

Finally, we'd like to thank the poets and everyone who supports Balck Bough. It has been a rewarding, exciting first year.
