Impspired Authors

When Moonlight Falls – By Angelina Der Arakelian – A collection of poetry thriving off both the irony and mastery of existence, cut into bits and pieces of an endless puzzle known as life. Written by one soul for another, it invites you to have a seat onboard a plane of stargazing into the abyss.
 
“There lies, 
A truth ever so strong
Euphoria unbound to present sight 
I crave it in doses, 
Reality aims to provide.”

– Memories of Never 
Winters Breath by Polly Richardson Munnelly Winter’s Breath, Polly Richardson-Munnelly’s riotous, rambunctious first collection is jam-packed with poems that trot, canter and gallop across the page. The poet’s deep and abiding love of horses takes centre stage, ably supported by a host of other themes: family, legends, sensuality, the insistent pull of Dublin in one direction, and of earth, sea and shoreline in the other. The poems reveal a poet reveling in her life, choosing to inhabit it fully, on no one’s terms but her own.

 Language is often deployed with scant regard for convention or form, obeying only the poet’s swooping, soaring, inner flights of fancy. Here is a poet enjoying herself thoroughly, relaxed in the saddle, giving each poem free rein to do as it pleases, trusting it knows how to find its way home.

Faking Nature
By Stephen Meek
‘Faking Nature’ is my third collection of poetry, the previous two being ‘the Bad Traveller’ and ‘July’.  Many of the poems were written to commission – many for a Cruse Bereavement poetry event and others for Arts Council funded exhibitions and performances, notably the Bird After Bird and After Bird exhibitions in Brigg.
Conveniently for these events, many of my poems cover the same themes – the beauty and permanence of nature contrasted with the transience of human existence. However, I also perform at poetry readings at venues where more light-hearted and (hopefully) comedic poems are what the crowd expects – so hopefully some of these poems will force the reader, if not to smile, at least to grimace!



Shouting At Lesbians
By Robbie Taylor
A book for those people who really shouldn’t judge books by their covers… or their titles.
Notes from the STATE of OMNESIA
By Henry Bladon
Somewhere in the near-future, the State of OMNESIA is ruled over by the TYRANT. Bureaucracy and an obsession with rule-making are paramount within this semi-dystopian social structure. Paperwork is done in triplicate, people actually measure pavement widths, and numerous departments and sub-departments ensure the efficiency of their unique system of Bureaucratic Idealism.
