Five New Poets...

We are thrilled to say that during the latter half of the year we were able to return to our plan of publishing that was set out in a pre-Covid world.


We were thrilled to welcome three new poets to The Jawbone Collective with their first publications.

- Home in Our Own Skins
August 2022 - Kate Gold
- Eight Buzzards Rising
August 2022 - Estelle Phillips

We have also been talking to a number of SouthWest poets and are planning to bring collections to Jawbone in early 2023 for two more Devon poete, Poppy Jayne Jones and Claire Morris. 


The first issue of Jawbone Journal should appear in April along with details of a chapbook competition to find and publish two more Jawbone Poets.

This title was so popular it sold out twice in the last two years. We have started to use a new printer. It gave us the opportunity to tweak some design elements to our satisfaction and the new print is a high quality with a laminated cover.
