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.
