HERRINGS, published in conjunction with Poetry in Aldeburgh, is an anthology of poems reflecting the gathering of poets at the first Poetry in Aldeburgh festival in November, 2016. Daphne Warburg Astor and Andrew Hewish have edited and designed HERRINGS in celebration of the poetry community far and wide.
In this beautiful hard-backed volume you’ll find over 100 poems written by first time poets as well as internationally respected poets, including – Moniza Alvi, Mona Arshi, Maura Dooley, Ian Duhig, Matthew Hollis, Ruth Padel. Many take inspiration from Aldeburgh, the North Sea, East Anglia, the energy and warmth of the festival, friendship, family and more.
Herrings costs £12. All money from sales will be donated to Poetry in Aldeburgh to help create the festival for years to come.

CHANGES TO POETRY AT BLUE DOOR PRESS
Daphne Astor has decided to take time out, so she won’t be editing further anthologies with BDP. She explains, “I will be spending the next year focussing on my own writing, drawing and farming.”
However, we do have plans for more poetry from Blue Door Press. Look out for announcements during 2018 in our newsletter and blog
