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

RIP Jazzman
