Leeds Poet, Becky Cherriman, Launches Echolocation

Award-winning Leeds poet Becky Cherriman releases her poetry pamphlet Echolocation with Mother’s Milk Books this month.

You can read her poem, Ultrasonics, taken from Echolocation, here.

Her first full collection is due out later in 2016 with Cinnamon Press

'Becky Cherriman's Echolocation is a stridently assured body of work that negotiates the tethers binding mother and child. Infertility, fostering and single motherhood are encountered and marked by those elements of love that exist within the interstices of domestic spaces and everyday life.' Poet and Novelist, Carolyn Jess-Cooke.

'An impressive first pamphlet which does not succumb to mawkish sentimentality, Echolocation displays some startling and original imagery.' Poet, Michael Brown.
