01 Dai Vaughan parallel texts (20pp): Dai Vaughan (1933–2012), film
editor and writer, published essays, poetry and novels, the most recent
being Sister of the artist (CBe, 2012). The pamphlet comprises a sequence
of 14 love poems written in the 1960s and a second, parallel sequence
written almost half a century later.

‘Vaughan is something of a master of the use of line, brilliantly playing his long and languorous sentences against line breaks and enjambments … It’s [the] physicality to the language that really makes Vaughan’s work sing: there’s a sense of a life lived here, of a world observed and rendered in palpable terms in a usable and versatile language.’ – Simon Turner, Under the Radar

02 David Wheatley dark and true and tender (20pp): David Wheatley is
a poet, critic and the editor of a recent selection of Beckett’s poetry. The
pamphlet’s title is from Tennyson; over a pint of mild in the Inkerman
Tavern the topics pondered include the pubs of Hull, the concept of the
holy drinker, and ‘the secret face of the North of England’.
