“The Inner Sea is a collection of poems by three emerging UK poets. Subtle echoes resonate throughout this small anthology. There are subjects as unexpected as mythical sea monsters, smartphone stargazing and alternating themes of relationships, philosophy and art.
Three quite different styles and sensibilities overlap in this book; let yourself sink into them, seeing what each current brings.”
— Brian Evans Jones, Hampshire Poet 2012
Poems by Mark Cooper, Joe Franklin & Hugh Greasley.
