Diana BishopThe Brewster Press of Stanhoe has published a collection of poems called Drawing the Line and Other Poems by Diana Bishop (photo, left).

Front cover of Drawing the LineDiana, who is based in London, is a member of Highgate Poets and former poet in residence at Keats House.

Fellow poets Alan Brownjohn and Robert Peake have said good things about the poems – read Robert Peake’s review here.

You can buy Drawing the Line from Amazon or directly from the publisher, the Brewster Press, set up by (tel 01485 518232). “Given the huge markup that Amazon charges,” Michael says, “I much prefer to sell directly!”.

Although Diana has been a prolific poet and performer for many years (working among other things at the BBC and reading for “Poetry Please”) Drawing the Line is her first published book of poetry and the most recent publication from the Brewster Press, which Michael officially registered earlier this year.

Michael lives at High Barn, Stanhoe, with artist Anabel Symington, whose illustrated Night Songs and Day Dreams he published in 2001. Anabel’s mother Antoinette Symington, who lived in the same house, was an artist whose Poems of a Lifetime were published (also by Michael) after her death.
