Pat White’s new poetry book will raise money for a Creative Writing Award for senior students at Mackenzie College



To be launched on 28th August, National Poetry Day, 2015 at Mackenzie  College & Community Library, Fairlie, by Jillian Sullivan. Fellow poets Michael Harlow and Sue Wootton will attend the launch and read.

Frontiers Press is pleased to announce the publication of Fracking & Hawk, poetry by Pat  White.

These poems, writes John Horrocks, ‘draw on a lifetime of immersion in the natural world and its rhythms’, and follow on from Planting the Olives (Frontiers, 2004). In Fracking & Hawk, the poet has added a strong sense of disquiet to his well-known observation of rural life and nature. This ‘deep engagement’ is described by Sue Wootton as being, ‘beautifully crafted, intelligent, and full of heart’.

The proceeds from sales of the book will be going towards setting up a Creative Writing Award for senior students at Mackenzie College.
