What If Stars
A poetry pamphlet by Beth Hartley, produced by Allographic Press.
“I come from: all points north where the sea comes in, birds rise on the seam of water, air and land; where the sacred calls to me…”
In this debut pamphlet, Beth Hartley brings us a stunning set of words conjuring home, history, place, and family; deceptively softly spoken, with all the strength at its core we’ve come to associate with her work.
“What if Stars is a gorgeous, lyrical collection, exploring the intersection between our physical and emotional landscapes, and Beth Hartley’s writing draws the reader in with its beautiful descriptions and fierce, uplifting warmth. Shot through with empathy and compassion, these are powerful poems that will stay with you long after you’ve finished the final page.” Leanne Moden
“There’s so much light in Beth’s words. This collection feels as though it should be weightless.” Mark Grist
Allographic Press is delighted to present this debut collection exploring how we exist between the liminal and lists.
