From the publisher

Playfully concerned with things, and words as things, the poems of Brightwork lend an ear to the surrounding soundscape of creaking pontoons, whistling patent slips, and harbourside voices. Brightwork was written during a residency at Underfall Yard, a working boatyard in Bristol, and is intended as a close reading of place, and of the objects in that place, turning its attention to slipways and skips, sluice paddles and slotting machines, boats and buoys.

Brightwork is Suzannah’s second Guillemot Press publication, following the success of her beautiful illustrated and interlocking double-pamphlet Marine Objects / Some Language in 2020. Although the original illustrated pamphlet has sold out, Marine Objects/Some Language is available in text only format in our Offcuts series.
