Procrastination Station #73


A bit late this week… I escaped the city, the internet and my phone for the weekend, but I have now returned and PS is better late than never!

Poetry as therapy

Dear Editor…

What ONS fans, friends and readers are up to this week: a new poem from the fabulous Mr Dave Coates // Gareth Trew at a handful of stones // JoAnne McKay’s excellent message of thanks to the Cumbrian police // and the brilliant Al Cook and Mairi Sharratt discuss this collection

I just discovered Tiger Beatdown and it’s a brilliant blog. Check out what Sady has to say about Kick Ass and “Man Books” (Sady’s also at The Awl talking about fighting in summer right now)
