‘Stolen Rowan Berries’
A new themed collection of poetry by Joy Winkler, available from October 2014.
Flowers and links to nature are used to reflect on events and people from the poet’s life. A rose, cornfield or the scent of lilac together with many more evocative images hold the key to an abundance of recollections; poignant, funny and thought provoking.
‘Shared memories keep us connected. We all have a story or memory inspired by flowers. Somehow they thread our lives together like a daisy chain’.
This is a beautifully produced booklet which includes commissioned paintings by Karen Rossart.
Script of Joy Winkler’s verse/drama which toured the North West successfully in 2013/14. “Thought-provoking, wonderfully performed bittersweet poetry. Deeply pleasurable”
The book includes original art work by Karen Rossart.
‘On the Edge’
A collection celebrating Joy Winkler’s successful year as Cheshire’s first female Poet Laureate, combining commissioned pieces with poems that use the changing seasons to reflect on the constant rhythm of life.
‘Splendidly simple’ vignettes of small town life, a story and cast of characters lurk in each sparse verse. Joy Winkler’s wry observations of life sound an agreeably melancholy note and skilfully juxtapose town and country, life and death, love and loss.
‘Joy Winkler is a true poet laureate. Her poems are peopled, human, full of the life of the community around her.’ Fiona Sampson
