FLARESTACK POETS' NEW CO-EDITOR
Flarestack Poets is sad to say goodbye to Meredith Andrea, whose contribution to the success of the press since its inception eight years ago has been immense. We can't thank her enough for the hard work and excellent judgement she brought to the press.
We welcome Isabel Palmer, who joins Jacqui Rowe as co-editor.
Isabel Palmer is a freelance writer and former English teacher and educational adviser. Her pamphlet, Ground Signs (Flarestack Poets, 2014) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice. In 2015 she read some of her poems on BBC Wiltshire and on Radio 4's The World at One with Martha Kearney, gave readings at States of Independence at De Montfort University, Leicester, and at Swindon Poetry Festival, and had a residency at Marlborough College. Her first full-length collection, Atmospherics, was published by Bloodaxe Books in a four-poet book entitled Home Front, which was launched at Dulwich Literary Festival on Remembrance Sunday, 2016.
