With the Covid lockdowns closing literary festivals around the world, Makar Jackie Kay was inspired to curate an online festival to offer a new way of engaging with music and poetry, while ensuring paid work for writers and performers.
This series of programmes, Makar to Makar, showcased a dazzling line-up of established talent and emerging voices.
This anthology presents the work of twelve poets, who have each donated a poem for the twelve days of Christmas. Moving, elegiac, angry, witty, these poems capture the light shed by Makar to Makar during dark times.
Not only are many of the poems appearing for the first time in print in the pamphlet, the cover features a drawing by Imtiaz Dharker done exclusively for Makar to Makar.
Costing £5, it would make a great stocking filler this Christmas for the poetry fan in your life. Or hey, treat yourself!
