INTRODUCING ONE PLUM POEM CARDS

Posted on November 02 2018

We're so excited to reveal that we're working with One Plum Poem to launch this beautiful array of poetry cards and offer an extra special Christmas poem card gift to all our PBS members! 

​Launched earlier this year,  One Plum Poem publishes poetry cards that give good poems and poets - contemporary and historical - a public platform outside of books or pamphlets. Illustrated by contemporary British artists and print-makers, the cards are made from paper sourced from the Lake District.

One Plum Poem is owned by Jenny Swann. Jenny studied English Literature and the History of Art before working in museums including the V&A, and running poetry workshops for the Manchester Art Gallery. After working as a freelance author, lecturer and poetry editor, she set up Candlestick Press in 2008, which she ran until mid-2016.

We're delighted to reveal that we'll be including a specially commissioned One Plum Poem card by the UK Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy beautifully illustrated by Jane Ray in your PBS Winter poetry parcel. The Founder of One Plum Poem, Jenny Swann explains more about this exquisite Christmas gift from One Plum poems and the PBS:

"Carol Ann Duffy is such a generous Poet Laureate who, additionally, has almost single-handedly turned Christmas into an annual poetry festival. As this is her last Christmas in office, we are so pleased to share with PBS members a poetry card featuring her new Christmas poem 'Long Table', illustrated by the magical Jane Ray, and intended as a small tribute to Carol Ann for all the Christmas poems - her own and those of others - that have given our Christmases some quietly (and noisily!) beautiful moments over the last ten years.

Join the PBS today to get your beautiful One Plum Poem gift in your PBS Winter poetry parcel and take a look at the wide range of One Plum Poem cards here.
