we are soon to announce a new member of the tall-lighthouse family – an exciting young poet from Canada – watch this space…
& we are going to be adding audio files to our site so you’ll be able to hear our poets reading their work (before you buy!)
to celebrate the start of the next chapter for tall-lighthouse we held a double book launch & reading at the Poetry Café in London on Monday 20 May.
‘a grand night’
Brendan Cleary read from his new sequence Do Horses Fly? and Julie Morrissy from her debut collection Where, the Mile End.
Julie’s Morrissy’s debut collection Where, the Mile End was launched at Poetry Ireland in Dublin on Thursday 21 February.
Brendan Cleary’s sequence of poems on the photographer Eadweard Muybridge Do Horses Fly? was launced at the ONCA Gallery, Brighton on Monday 29 April.
in 2018 we were saddened to record the passing of Jazzman John Clarke the original tall-lighthouse poet who we met at Magnetic North Writers in Greenwich & published his early jazz poetry which kick-started the press
he was a stalwart at our early readings at Stark Gallery & remained an essential part of the London poetry spoken word scene for almost 20 years
we are not currently seeking submissions for new work
