More about the poet: 
Stewart Carswell grew up in the Forest of Dean.

He has performed his poetry at the Bristol Poetry Festival, and the In Other Words Festival in Cambridge. His poems have recently been published in magazines including Envoi, Cadaverine, and Brittle Star,and included in the Best New British and Irish Poets 2016 anthology (Eyewear Publishing).

His poems are influenced by the mysterious and secretive nature of the Forest, and its unique layers of history.
