Poets of the future: Colin Dardis


I am delighted to say that I will be publishing the innovative and creatively-crafted collection of Colin Dardis, an exciting and established poet who came to me with a collection, 'The Dogs of Humanity'. I was sold at the word 'dogs' but it turned out that the poetry itself was truly excellent, which was the cherry on top.
