Charles Heathcote – Shepherd’s Delight [REVIEW]

Title: Shepherd’s Delight

Author: Charles Heathcote

Type:  Poetry

Page Count/Review Word Count: 64

Rating: 3.5/5  

This collection of poems is all about Charlie’s upbringing as the son of a farmer who has no interest in joining the family trade. It’s mostly free verse, which is my favourite, and touches on some interesting subjects like LGBTQIA+ farmers and familial identity.

Rattle – Issue #81 [REVIEW]

Title: Issue #81

Author: Rattle

Type: Poetry/Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 110

Rating: 3.5/5  

This is the latest instalment of Rattle’s literary magazine, and it’s just as enjoyable as the last one. I only actually have it because I submitted some work to them, but I’m glad that I did. They’re publishing exactly the kind of modern, free verse poetry that I like to read.

Is it perfect? No. There are plenty of poems that flop for me, but that’s the beauty of reading poetry. I think there’s a little something here for everybody, and so if you’re into poetry then go check it out.
