This week’s Friday Poem is ‘Just About Now’ by Judy Brown from her collection Crowd Sensations.
Judy is joining us at virtual First Thursday next week to read alongside Katrina Naomi. Find the full details here.
Crowd Sensations, Judy Brown’s second collection, was shortlisted for the Ledbury Forte Prize. She is a poet of dazzling contrasts, of thoughtful paradox, intimate confidences and precise evocations. Her titles and first lines both draw you right into a poem and then quite often surprise you with a narrative that you hadn’t expected. Her work is fired as much by intelligence and philosophical speculation, as it is by the emotion stirred up by experience and relationships.
