Crafty Green Poetry Collection

(I've been meaning to post this for weeks...)

Juliet Wilson is a poet and environmentalist living in Edinburgh who, amongst other things, blogs over at Crafty Green Poet. If you haven't visited her before by clicking the link at the side of this page, you are missing a fascinating blog illustrated with Juliet's own wonderful wildlife photography.

She has a collection of poetry out at the moment called 'Unthinkable skies', which I heartily recommend. Following this link will tell you everything you need to know about how to get hold of a copy. She writes with true verve and passion, and with just a sprinkling of wry humour. Most of all, if you're anything like me and just a little daunted by scarily inaccessible poetry, Juliet's work never leaves you wondering 'just what was that about?'

Go on, go and order a copy of 'Unthinkable Skies'. It's a very beautiful collection from a very talented poet, and a very enjoyable read.

  3. Juliet's work (both poetic and environmental AND crafty) is all quite admirable. I enjoy her insights on many levels.
