Poetry

In printSheffield Almanac cover

My 2017 pamphlet Sheffield Almanac is published by Longbarrow Press. It’s a poem in four chapters about rivers, rain, relocation and regeneration, exploring the industrial past and post-industrial future of my adopted home city.

Two of my poems feature in issue 14 of Route 57, a special locomotion-themed edition. The two are ‘Passenger’ and ‘Railway Time’. The journal is a beautiful publication which entirely deserves to be in your life.

I’m the Featured Poet in issue 66 of The Interpreter’s House. This means it includes three of my poems (‘Growing Seasons’, ‘Far North Line’ and ‘I am the king of Belgium’) and they rather grandly call me Peter instead of plain old Pete. Irrespective of my featuring, it’s a wonderful journal which deserves a place in your life.
