Oversteps News 34  February 2015

I’m writing to let you know about the two new collections Oversteps has so far published in 2015.

Thumbprints by Helen Overell (ISBN 978-1-906856-53-3)

thumbprints-full      Portrait Helen Overell
There is a wealth of subject matter in this new collection from Helen Overell, including compassionate poems about the residents of a care home, descriptions of Helen’s travels in Jordan, a celebration of a cave painting in South Africa and even the joy of planting seedling leeks; and throughout the collection there is evidence of a deep and informed love of music. The variety and depth of these poems will bring delight to readers.

A Prism for the Sun by Rose Flint (ISBN 978-1-906856-54-0)

rose-flint      Rose Flint front cover
Rose is a prize-winning poet who has spent many years working as a creative writing tutor in health care, and this is reflected in her recent work such as the sequence of fifteen poems entitled Elements of Healing. In this new collection Rose celebrates the interconnections between poetry, landscape and health; and her poems are both musical and perceptive.
