Remembering Linda

I'm looking forward to a tribute to Linda Chase at the Manchester Literature Festival in October. Her poems old and new will be read by a selection of poets, and her final collection - Not Many Love Poems - will be launched.
I'm glad the Guardian are featuring her for this week's Saturday poem.


  1. I hate to admit it but I was not familiar with her poetry. That one in the the Guardian you linked to is wonderful and leaves me wanting to read more.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it Dominic, she writes with great freshness, feeling and openness that I find really inspiring. Her other two collections are The Wedding Spy and Extended Family and I'd recommend them both.

  3. Lovely poem. am volunteering at the festival and hope to get to some of the poetry events.
    much love

  4. what an exciting thing to do Martine, you'll be at the hub of it all - I'll look out for you as I want to go to a couple of the events :0)
