Offcumdens

Be the first to favourite this.

Emma Storr’s first poetry collection was published by Fair Acre Press in March 2022 and is the result of a three-year collaboration with photographer and writer Bob Hamilton.  Offcumdens is a book of Bob’s black and white photographs of Yorkshire ‘s people, streets and landscapes paired with Emma’s poems. An ‘offcumdens’ is a Yorkshire term meaning someone not born in the county. Both Emma and Bob are southerners who have ended up in Yorkshire for different reasons but now consider it home.

There’s a space; a liminal space, a creative space, an adventurous space and a surprising space where words and images meet and this superb book celebrates that exciting space.

A dialogue of creation – poet Mark Goodwin and editor Brian Lewis

5 Mar, 2022

Every writer is edited before publication. But what if the editing process is undertaken by someone who knows the writer and his work so well that the editing process becomes intensive dialogue of creation?
