Big thanks to poet, organiser, independent scholar, online co-ordinator and unrepentant idealist Steve Willey who offers some words on Contumacy (Erbacce Press 2014) as part of his new Transmissions series.
…what I like most about Hawkins’ work: the poems consistently point away from themselves and take you back to the world; they let you listen in, then they make you listen out, then they tell you listen up.

I’ll be reading from Contumacy on April 18th at The Duke of York, along with Sarer Scotthorne, Lucy Furlong and there’ll be electronica from Sheer Zed. It’s a Bristol launch night for Sarer’s latest pamphlet, The Blood House and Lucy’s new pamphlet ~clew~ (both pub. by Hesterglock Press).
