'One vast page ranging away from view, no paragraphs for pauses. Where to begin, how to find a loose thread that invites unravelling. Each sentence slips out of its predecessor and into the next, wave upon wave of calligraphy, not a lapse or hesitation in sight' - from "Sea Script" by Anne Ryland. "Entering the Tapestry", the second volume in "The Poetry School's" warmly welcomed series of anthologies of new voices, presents a generous selection of work from thirty poets. Some are on their way to a first collection, others exploring what might lie beyond the success of individual poems.All of them offer, not only an abundance of talent, but the delight of fully achieved poems and the presence of an individual voice. In its variety of style, tone, length and subject matter, "Entering the Tapestry" is an invitation to enjoy the contrasts and follow the distinctive threads in a vivid spectrum of new writing, whether it falls within current fashions or dares to strike out beyond. The poets featured include: Frances Angela, Matt Barnard, Chris Beckett, Linda Black, Diana Brodie, Nadine Brummer, Robert Chandler, Valerie Clarke, Heather Coffey, Tricia Corob, Wendy French, Jacqueline Gabbitas, Lucy Hamilton, Bryan Heiser, Fawzia Kane, Nell Keddie, Khan Singh Kumar, Julia Lewis, Maureen Li, Tony McKeown, Dominic McLoughlin, Mary MacRae, Bill Presley, Meryl Pugh, Jo Roach, Anna Robinson, Beverley Rowe, Anne Ryland, Deborah Sacks, Ruth Smith.
