To celebrate the launch of new publications by four extra-special poets, we welcome you to the Poetry Rodeo…

Alistair Noon was born in 1970 and grew up in Aylesbury. Besides time spent in Russia and China, he has lived in Berlin since the early nineties, where he works as a translator. His poetry and translations from German and Russian have appeared in nine chapbooks from small presses. Earth Records is his first full-length collection.

Sarah Jackson's pamphlet Milk (Pighog) was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award. Her work appears in a wide range of magazines and anthologies including Voice Recognition: 21 Poets for the 21st Century (Bloodaxe) and The Best British Poetry 2011 (Salt). Pelt is published by Bloodaxe in May 2012.

C. J. Allen’s prize-winning poetry (in the Arvon, Yorkshire, Lebdury, Ilkley, Ware, Nottingham & English Association competitions, amongst others) has been appearing in magazines & anthologies in the UK, USA, Ireland & elsewhere for what feels to him like hundreds of years.  His most recent collections are:  A Strange Arrangement: New and Selected Poems (Leafe Press, 2007), & Lemonade (a red ceilings press e-book, 2010).  Violets – winner of the Templar Press Short Collection Competition – was published in November 2011. He currently edits the reviews pages of the literary magazine Staple. 

Aly Stoneman is an arts project coordinator and poetry editor at LeftLion Magazine. Her writing explores relationships between human beings and landscape through myths and journeys. A commissioned poet for Lyric Lounge and winner of the Nottingham Poetry Society Slam 2011, her pamphlet Lost Lands was published by Crystal Clear Creators in March 2012.
