My poetry pamphlet Reading the Landscape is published by Hedgehog Press on 16 February 2022.
The cover design is a scene from woodland in the Eildon Hills in the Scottish Borders. Landscape is key to the poetry pamphlet, as landscapes and the natural world fill me with hope. The collection contains poems that explore and relish the natural landscape as well as exploring inner mindscapes.
‘Carol McKay’s poetry is vividly and poignantly in touch with the things that matter – family, community, a sense of place and of history. These big-hearted, keen-eyed poems understand just how precarious life can be, and how thrilling.’ Chris Powici, author of Look, Breathe, Red Squirrel Press, 2022.
‘Craft without ever seeming in any way laboured, tight but not overwrought. I love Carol’s use of the short line; the images she finds right outside her door and on long walks.’ Donal McLaughlin, author of beheading the virgin mary and other stories, Dalkey Archive
