Brewery Poets: Antony Christie, Harriet Fraser, Mark Carson
Antony Christie divides his time between a farmhouse in the South Tyne Valley and a renovated one-room school in Grey County in Ontario. His poetry has been published in magazines in England, Ireland and Canada, including Fiddlehead, Prairie Fire, Smiths Knoll, Other Poetry and Poetry Ireland Review, in anthologies, three pamphlets and two full-length collections. He has read his work in co-ops, bookstores, village halls, libraries, a farmers’ market, and at local and international festivals, including StAnza and the last Collingwood Wordstock. His latest pamphlet, The Archaeologist’s Daughter, was published by Wayleave in April 2019.
Harriet Fraser gets her inspiration for poetry from time spent outside, usually on long, slow walks and overnight camps, and from talking with people whose work and lives gives them intimate knowledge of environmental issues. Much of her work focuses on the natural world, bringing together a sense of wonder with concern, exploring issues of belonging, loss and uncertainty, and the hope and optimism that come with action. Harriet’s poetry is frequently part of environment art projects which she carries out with her partner, photographer Rob Fraser, through their practice somewhere nowhere. Her work has been shortlisted for the Bridport Poetry Prize and Lakeland Book of the Year Award, she has poems in several anthologies and has published the poetry collection ‘Meadow’, among other books.
Mark Carson is an Irish ocean engineer now securely anchored on the shores of Morecambe Bay.
He has been active in the South Lakeland poetry scene for many years, and since 2005 his off-centre poetry has been widely published. A selection appeared in 2015 (Wayleave Press Hove-to is a State of Mind).
