Ama Bolton's poetry blog

Today brings another lovely discovery that I've made during lockdown: Ama Bolton's long-running and unique poetry blog, titled barleybooks, pages from an unbound book. It might be new to me in spite of having been started way back in 2012, but that simply means there's now even more enjoyment to be mined from its archive!

Ama's blog gives particular pleasure thanks to its exploration of the creative process (both as an individual and as part of a group), often linking visual elements to poems and vice versa. Somehow, as a reader in partial lockdown, I feel comforted and reassured by these displays of imagination at work. All in all, thoroughly recommended!
