Paul Stephenson’s debut pamphlet Those People, a winner in the recent Poetry Business Competition, is launched today (16th May) at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere. Judge Billy Collins said of Paul’s poems:
‘Funny and quite serious at the same time, these poems cast a fresh, ironic eye on contemporary life and find a wild variety of fields in which to play. The colloquial tone and satiric brilliance might make a reader wish to hear more, ideally over a pint or two.’
Those People is available to buy on the Poetry Business Website.
