There is now a Vanity Project page on the website with an explanation of what the project is about.

This Sunday, 4th June, a preview video will be published of ‘PENTECOST’, a song from the collection.

Anthologia: Gender Special

I’ve had a couple of poems, ‘a toast’ and ‘I am pregnant with proclamations of love’ from Anatomy added to an Anthologia on gender collected by Plymouth’s poet laureate, Blaidh Nemorlith (Thom Boulton).

You can read the Anthologia here.

As well as my stuff, there is work from other lovely Plymouth poets and an essay on gender too. It’s a really diverse and interesting selection.

New review for Anatomy

Thanks very much to Lunar Poetry for publishing a review by Kyle Cooper of Anatomy . It’s a very kind review as well.

If you’d like to read it all, you can purchase a copy of the journal here.

However, here’s a happy quote:

“Mostly, however, Travers evokes the contemporary world with an elegance that is rare. Against this constant stream of
status updates, bright screens and blaring noise, the relationship is barely a whisper; and because of this, it is successful.”

The team responsible for Lunar Poetry are also trying at the moment to crowdsource £5000 with the aim of setting up a specialist poetry bookshop in London. Perhaps you could consider giving their campaign a visit here.

Weekly Indie Word Slinger Feature and Review

I’m very grateful to Ali Crean, who runs the All The Things Inbetween blog. She has placed an interview with me on her weekly feature on her blog called Weekly Indie Word Slinger. Ali also has posted a very kind review of Anatomy on her blog too.

Read the Word Slinger feature.

Read the review.
