Multistory is pleased to announce the launch of Tipton Tales – a book of newly commissioned poetry focusing on the Sandwell town of Tipton by poet Emma Purshouse. Emma is part of the Black Country collective Poets, Prattlers, and Pandemonialists whose main aim is to take poetry to people rather than to wait for people to come to poetry.
This book features work by Emma and by poets that she invited to take part – Casey Bailey, Liz Berry, Roz Goddard, Brendan Hawthorn, Kuli Kohli, Roy McFarlane, Dave Pitt, Steve Pottinger and Billy Spakemon. Each of them have deep-rooted connections to, and a respect and love of, the region. The illustrations are by local illustrator, Louise Byng.
The book was commissioned and produced by Multistory; further information can be found here.
Price is £7.50 plus P&P (UK second class).
