We are delighted to announce the full list of contributors to our very special anthology, The Cotton Grass Appreciation Society. Thank you to everyone who sent a poem. We had a huge response and were absolutely delighted by the diversity of the work. As well as open submissions, we asked a small number of poets who we admire to contribute and we’re thrilled to announce that alongside these submissions, the new Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, will also feature.
The book will be published by Maytree Press on the 01 August 2019 with an official launch event during the Marsden Walking Festival in September. Profits raised from the collection will go towards helping Marsden Walkers are Welcome continue their important work in promoting the health benefits of walking whilst looking after the 64 miles of Pennine footpaths that surround the village of Marsden.
