Charlotte Wetton surreal poetry collection acquired by The Emma Press
Centre for New Writing PhD candidate Charlotte Wetton has had a collection of surreal poetry acquired by The Emma Press, an independent publishing house based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
Charlotte’s Accessioning examines what it is we consider worthy of remembering and her poems balance the differences between the memories forgotten and encountered again in a box or curiosity shop, and institutional memories that are preserved among museum artefacts.
“I've followed the Emma Press since its inception,” she said. “They are outward-looking, energetic, and constantly innovating. I'm really happy that my pamphlet has found its home with them. And it's nice to be stable-mates with Rebecca Hurst too.”
Due to be published in June 2023.
