Rafael Q Publishers have now published three Highgate Poets in the first volumes of their RQpoetry pamphlets series: Miriam Halahmy, Anne Ballard and Vicky Olliver. For further information about this series, or to obtain copies of their books, please contact the poets through this website.
Anne Ballard’s poem Meeting Places; Nicholson Square is included in the Anthology ‘Umbrellas of Edinburgh’ to be published in November by Freight Books.
Vicky Olliver joins Miriam Halahmy and Anne Ballard with A Handful of Clouds, Darkening, her first poetry pamphlet and Volume 3 in the RQ poetry pamphlets series from Rafael Q Publishers.
“These poems are universal in their specificity, unsentimental in their compassion, infused with poignancy and childlike fascination. Here is the stuff of poetry.”
– Robert Peake, author of ‘The Knowledge.’
