More Words for Underword

J.S.Watts' third poetry collection, Underword, is reviewed in the latest edition of The Journal (#69)

You'll need to purchase a copy of the magazine to read the full review, as well as the many outstanding poems appearing in the latest edition, but here's a flavour of what reviewer Melissa Todd has to say about Underword:

"Every facet of death is faced boldly, bluntly, and with beautiful rhythm and resonance... many of her (Watts') poems remind me of Ted Hughes, in their visceral, vulnerable fragility" 

"J.S. Watts plots her course with cautious but consummate ease" - extracts                                                   from The Journal (Issue 69)
