Koestler Voices: New Poetry from Prisons

 

This beautiful book of poetry from The Koestler Trust's annual poetry prizes, which I edited in 2017, is available to buy at the Koestler online shop here
 

'This is a powerful and inspirational collection born from hard-won experience, thinking time, and above all literary talent.'
Bidisha

'The poems in this anthology are compelling human documents, offering a unique insight into the rhythms of life beyond prison walls, and imagined vistas beyond. They are as various in shape and mood as the minds that made them.'
Sarah Howe
