V. Press would like to wish all our authors, readers and supporters a healthy, peaceful and hopeful festive season and a Happy New Year!

We're also very very delighted to share an extra item of  December good news and our continuing Winter Offers for readers below.

MICHAEL MARKS AWARD/TLS REVIEW NEWS

About Leaving by Ian Glass was mentioned by Michael Marks Award 2020 judge Kei Miller as one of the pamphlets that made ‘a kind of longlist’ for that year’s record-entry award. A video of the award ceremony can be enjoyed here, with the longlist comments towards 1hr 20 mins in.

The scale is small, the language low-key, concerned with such things as a “shining hour” spent “drinking milk, / watching children’s television”, and the more poignant for it.[…]”

William Wootten, TLS, full review here.
