Her Heart Poetry is pleased to confirm that works selected for publication in The Annual ǀ 2017 will be showing here and on Instagram over the coming month.

The poems selected all come with fresh images – images from today’s world. These poems use contemporary language, words and phrases. There are still the old themes of love and loss, loneliness and compassion, but also modern themes of digital identity, transience and of course the cult of coffee. Each located in the here and now, in works that are zany, poignant, tense, tender, stark and violent. Each poem was selected for its unique perspective.

We know that you will enjoy them.

The winning entry, Sentimentalism by Zoe Andrews, can be viewed in full here.

If you would like to purchase a digital download or hardcopy of  The Annual ǀ 2017, you can do so from our online bookstore.
