The poem for January is: ‘It was As If’ by Frank McMahon. It is one of three Covid-inspired works by Frank featured in an anthology produced by Palewell Press. See our earlier post for details on how to buy it.
Three poems by Frank McMahon are to be published in a Covid-inspired anthology of poetry and prose by Palewell Press. Frank said ‘Can you hear the people sing?’ brings together voices from around the world, tragic, worried, resilient, humorous, poetic, reflective. They all give evidence of the shared humanity which is helping us to survive and keep going.’ You can find out more about Palewell Press and order a copy of the anthology here.
