Jake Campbell, former Creative Writing student at the University of Chester, has published a second pamphlet of poetry, The Coast Will Wait Behind You. It is available from Art Editions North.
Poet Jean Sprackland comments: ‘The tempered lyricism of Jake Campbell's poems, and their forensic attention to detail, bring to life the visceral and psychological experience of coastal place, with all its edge-of-the-world urgency and exhilaration.’
Lecturer Dr Ian Seed says of the collection: ‘The poems in The Coast Will Wait Behind You convey such a strong sense of voice and of landscape. They are haunting, unafraid of the world of the dead, yet always feel firmly rooted in the world we live in.’
