Praise For Islands Are But Mountains

"In a world noisy with cacophony and kerfuffle, here are strong, clear voices to help you make sense of what's happening and to begin to do something about it. This is language that dances with purpose, that sings with a sense of mission. Listen to these voices, hear them call." - Ian McMillan

"To say that this anthology is a breath of fresh air risks cliche, and this book avoids cliche at every turn - the poems are urgent, surprising, daring, astute, and nuanced. Here are poems to cry to, laugh to, and live with. Compelling new work." - Helen Mort.
