The World is for Everyone

The writing in this anthology is by members of PAMOJA Women Together – a group of refugee, asylum-seeking and irregular migrant women from a wide range of countries, faiths and backgrounds. PAMOJA means ‘together’ and ‘inclusive’ in Swahili. The World Is For Everyone is not a traditional anthology of writing. It represents the voices, creative contributions and insights – written and spoken – of the PAMOJA Women Together Group, as these emerged through a series of cultural projects organized as part of the Changing Wor(l)ds Project at Nottingham Trent University. This enchanting book is unique and very personal. As well as poems, stories and photographs, there are recipes handed down from mother to daughter, carried right across the world and recreated in the UK as an evocation of their birthplaces. Listen and you will find these women have vital things to say. They speak of courage needed, pain overcome, puzzlement, patience, struggle, rejection and the ultimate triumph of the spirit.

The World is for Everyone launches in December 2019. You can order the paperback for £9.99 (excluding postage) from this page, or from Amazon ISBN 978-1-911587-27-9. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Algiers: The Poet's Garden

Soleïman Adel Guémar worked as a freelance investigative journalist in Algeria from 1991 until 2002, when he claimed political asylum in the UK. These short stories address the agonies of contemporary Algeria and the survival, despite everything, of dreams of a different world. Translated by Tom Cheesman, and first appearing in Local Therapy by Hafan Books, 2013, they have a “fighter’s edge, a tough beauty.” - Lisa Appignanesi, Chair of the Royal Society of Literature. “The short prose works in Algiers: The Poet's Garden bring us to Algeria's black decade of the 1990s. Here language is pared back to a pure economy of expression that allows for the confrontation of madness and reason. The madness of a system that cloaks itself in the reason of law and a countering 'madness' of a utopian hope and vision – the only recourse of those for whom reality has become unreal. In this collection Guemar sounds the depths of a society where justice, law and rules are hollowed out and where people are forced not to dream yet do so, in order as to escape the darkness. Wise, uncompromising, and unsettling these stories explore brutalising limits and look beyond a dystopian present.” - Patrick Crowley, University College Cork.

Algiers: The Poet's Garden launches in November 2019. You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page, or from Amazon ISBN 978-1-911587-29-3. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Grandmother's Patchwork

This is the first full poetry collection by Jane Sherwin, bringing together poems from Wordshare anthologies, self-published Chapbooks and new unpublished work. Grandmother's Patchwork reflects the long life of a woman passionately committed to humanity, in particular the needs of refugees, political prisoners and the homeless. And through her nature poems, Jane also voices deep anxiety about the damage modern technology causes the environment. Despite these concerns, she stays resolutely hopeful and the final poem reminds us of “the green world spinning in the starry heavens, / the deep seas washing tides, draining rivers, / the cloud layer and the painted skies of dawn and sunset.” From the complex issues around Tahir Square to the plight of street children in India, the compassionate anger in Jane’s poetry speaks truth to power. Today’s news coverage is so intense and distressing that we’re sometimes tempted to turn away and stop listening. But through poems like the ones in this book we are encouraged to re-engage in the fight for a fairer, more sustainable world.

Grandmother's Patchwork launched in November 2019. You can order the paperback for £9.99 (excluding postage) from this page, or from Amazon ISBN 978-1-911587-28-6. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Welling Up

Welling Up is the first anthology composed of writing submitted to Palewell Press, with selection based on our core values of justice, equality and sustainability. From Fortaleza de Sagres in Portugal where, “Out on the edge of Europe the great fort squats / brooding in the heat,” to generations of forgotten women drawing water from a well in Africa, twenty-eight poets share compassion and anger on the problems facing marginalised and displaced people. To achieve greater justice and equality we also need environmental sustainability and the fifth section looks at Global Warming. Ultimately, though, we can only protect elements of our world that we’re able to describe effectively. Welling Up concludes with lyrical hymns to Nature and her “hidden streams / where your heart / sits up, awake at last, / to pay attention.”

Welling Up launched in October 2019. You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page, ISBN 978-1-911587-26-2 or from Amazon. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Dandelion Child

Many people in the poetry world were saddened by the death, last Christmas, of poet Frances White from Motor Neurone Disease. Dandelion Child is her second and posthumous collection, compiled with help from her husband Stephen. Frances' many interests are revealed in this fine collection : the natural world, childhood, music, poetry, family and friends, religious faith, the wider world. Her achingly moving late poems underline her ability to be bracingly honest. Readers will be drawn to her evocations of childhood in Mountain Mist, "We thought clouds were soft shape-shifters" and of adolescence in the title poem, "a lull/before hot summers/the rush of freedom/music in the air/wild flowers in our hair/and then the longing/for red roses." Stephen will be donating proceeds from the sale of Dandelion Child to MNDA (the Motor Neurone Disease Association).

Dandelion Child launched in October 2019. You can order the paperback for £9.00 (excluding postage) from this page, ISBN 978-1-911587-21-7, or from Amazon. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

The Architect

A radical social treatise about African American gangs in the 21st century. This book is more than just a blueprint for self-transformation and the reconstruction of gang culture. It is also a unique step-by-step guideline that shows gang members themselves how to do it. Craig Ross and Steve Champion’s analysis builds upon – and expands – the work that Crips gang co-founder and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Stanley “Tookie” Williams was committed to before his death. The Architect seeks to change the narrative about gang members by providing them with an independent and self-sustaining plan of action and empowerment. This book is the first of its kind. The authors are two well-respected Crips emeritus from Los Angeles, who are now prominent in the criminal justice reform movement. They also reside on death row at San Quentin State Prison. Ross and Champion’s street and prison experience enables them to offer in The Architect authentic, honest dialogue about the problems gang members face and the potential solutions to those problems. The Architect was written for gang members. But anyone working for real community change should read The Architect. The triumph over violence requires extreme responsibility—not just from gang members, but from everyone.

The Architect launched in Los Angeles in September 2019 and a UK launch is being planned. You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page, ISBN 978-1-911587-14-9, or from Amazon. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Life Lessons

Debut poetry collection by novelist Richard Aronowitz. He writes passionately about love and the natural world but his work also delves into the darker sides of recent history. "Aronowitz’s Life Lessons is a book about coming into knowledge. Not so much from reading, but from living close to the natural world, to family and to history. Tied to a conviction that “We are what we have always been”, these thoughtful, well-crafted poems evoke an English pastoral tradition almost as a birthright, except that today the poet escapes, not the tensions of the Elizabethan Court, but the gargantuan features of an industrial economy." Richard's poems have been shortlisted for the Bridport Prize and the Troubadour International Poetry Prize.

Life Lessons launched in April 2019. You can order the book for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page or Amazon, ISBN 978-1-911587-18-7. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Resting Place

Martin Johns's poetry pamphlet collection Resting Place, was published in January 2019. S.A.Leavesley writes that, within Resting Place, "Historical backdrops, compositional inspiration, imaginative flights of the honeybee...the wide-ranging four sections – New World, Old World, Mortality and Another Country – pulse like chambers of the heart. Alongside beauty, sharp edges are exposed: the world's darker elements and the human body's personal, moving, fragilities. Ultimately though, each poem is a resting place: the words on the page and the space around them allow each image, rhythm and emotion to sink in, then resonate, as if 'punctuated by the brilliant | echo of stars.'"

Resting Place was published in January 2019. You can order the pamphlet for £6.00 (excluding postage) from this page or Amazon, ISBN 978-1-911587-13-2. Please contact us at enquiries@palewellpress.co.uk if you have any delivery queries

Thirty years a writer, Gillian Petrie has been an active member of Salisbury’s Kick Start Poets, Royal Holloway’s MA Course in Creative Writing, Palewell Poets, and Letterpress Poets with whom she performed at the Troubadour. Compassion illuminates many of the poems, whether for patients in the psychiatric hospital of which her father was medical director, a friend in an abusive marriage or a woman whose grandchild has just died.

As Philip Gross writes on the back cover, “Personal journal and public statement, lyric observation and prospectus for radical care of the land, this is life-writing in a fundamental sense. Like Ted Hughes’ Moortown or Sean Borodale’s Bee Journal, it is grounded in living the life, and doing the work, day by day, of a place.

Supinely Sublimely

Marion Michell's beautiful collection of textlings - carefully crafted and tightly focused prose - is illustrated with her own artwork - November 2016. The writing in this prose collection surges off the page giving glimpses of a life bent out of shape by M.E. and P.O.T.S., debilitating and little understood diseases. Her words sizzle with the suppressed energy of an adventurous spirit. Tom Shakespeare, Professor of Disability at Norwich writes: "In the tradition of Fernando Pessoa and William Soutar, Marion Michell writes from her bed and takes us on journeys with language which leave us enriched. Concision may be forced on her, but it generates memorable distillation of the experience of illness, which will be familiar to anyone who has endured a health problem."
