We are delighted to be publishing Tessa Foley's eagerly awaited second collection. 

"A few poets are original, a few are distinct, a handful are sad, some wise, some funny. I can’t think of any recent English poet who’s arrived with so much of this already blazing. Tessa Foley is a brilliant and unmistakable new poet, in whose hands the language is pure glistening matter." Glyn Maxwell

Tessa Foley is a poet whose work explores feminism, sexuality and the rejection of normalcy. Her debut poetry collection, ‘Chalet Between Thick Ears’ was published by Live Canon in November 2018 and has inspired a series of Live Canon films. The same year, Tessa also self-published ‘Garden’, illustrated by her sister, Anna Foley, to raise money for the Portsmouth Abuse and Rape Counselling Service where she volunteered for three years. She has recently been recognised in the Ware Poets Competition, the Charroux Poetry Prize and the Canterbury Literary Festival Poet of the Year Competition.
