Literary Eynsham 7 Dec 2023 A new contribution to our feature on Eynsham-based writers... just in time for Christmas :-)

Thanks to Jaqueline Mitchell for drawing our attention to her latest publication. Birds: An Anthology ‘brings together poetry and prose in celebration of birds, records their behaviour, flight, song and migration, the changes across the seasons and in different habitats – in woodland and pasture, on river, shoreline and at sea – and our own interaction with them’. And the woodcuts by Eric Fitch Daglish, as the cover sample shows, are a delight.

Stephen Yeo’s first poetry collection, Lately, evolved in three Covid-plus years and launches on 26 May. Do check the generous preview.
