Now that the festival season is over, there's nothing better than having a new poetry collection to dip into as the nights draw in. And our friends at the Edinburgh International Book Festival have kindly supplied us with some books to give away to StAnza followers: windfalls from the crop of wonderful poets who came to Charlotte Square this year. Our first pair of books to give away are tw0 new, highly accomplished new voices.
Will Eaves is a poet and novelist: formerly arts editor of the Times Literary Supplement, he now teaches at the University of Warwick. His first full poetry collection Sound Houses (Carcanet) ranges in subject and setting from the Australian bush to the West Country, from sick rooms to football terraces and examines the uncertainties of everyday life with both a comic and elegiac sensibility.
To take part in our giveaway, email your name and full postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org
The first entry to be received before 5pm, Friday 23 September will receive the books.
