Hemisphere is the story of an impossible journey, told in verse, which circumnavigates the politics of interaction between people, places and poetry. On a chaotic round trip from the Hebrides across the north Atlantic, Canada, Alaska and Siberia, the poem invites reflection on government and nationality, geography, language and ‘post-truth’, fertility, decay, and imagination.
Hemisphere is published by Longbarrow Press on 15 October 2021 as a 48-page ‘short book’, with illustrations by Abi Goodman.
