Poems by Anne Ballard are appearing in the following publications:
Play It as a Comedy is in Orbis #183, just published.
Black Dog will be in the next edition of Acumen.
Messenger o Bad News is in the latest Poetry Scotland.
Valentina’s poem With the First Cockerel has been selected to be published in The Fabler magazine – a literary outlet founded by an expatriate living in Moscow.
The poem is part of the Flashbacks collection about her childhood memories, and hence features Russian cultural references. Childhood is one of the closest and dearest themes to the poet, upon which she embarked after reading Seamus Heaney.

His debut pamphlet, Explosives Licence, will be published by Templar Poetry in the coming months, with a launch on June 3rd at Keats House in Hampstead.
