Over the coming year, I'll be working with leading Welsh publisher Parthian Books to put together a volume of my new and selected essays about the recent English-language poetry of Wales. Parthian's Editor, the poet and commentator Kathryn Gray, will be guiding the project in-house. Having had the privilege of writing for New Welsh Review during Kathryn's stewardship of that magazine, it's great to have the chance to work with her again.
The book will include essays on the historical development of Anglophone Welsh poetry since the 1960s as well as on individual poetic figures during this period. Publication is provisionally scheduled for the first half of 2013.
