Here’s a poem from the lovely Lynsey Rose. Lynsey’s novel will be released through the Green Press very soon! If you want to hear Lynsey’s voice (well, you never know) and you like Big Brother, why not check out her podcast? (We can’t be serious poets and novelists all the time).
The duck egg sky
The sky is marshmallow blue,
I want to peel it
like a sticker
wipe it like a board.
The sky is
a duck egg
an angel cake
an eye-shadow trio
or a mistake.
£70,000 was needed to fund renovations and the first year of operation to help save Kensal Green Library, and at the time of writing, £73,856 has been pledged, including a £1,000 donation from Willesden Green Writers’ Group, which will now get its name on the wall of the library.
The Green Press is populated with writers from this very talented group, so we’re very proud to have helped played a part in saving the library, and look forward to holding events there in the future!
