Iron Henry

Original Illustration by Gris Grimly

Hi all! I’m once again delighted to tell you all about my latest collaboration with aAh! Magazine, Manchester Metropolitan University’s official arts and culture student magazine.

The latest poem is ‘Iron Henry’, a From the Archive poem that was redrafted to perfection with the wonderful assistance of the magazine’s Creative Editors. Iron Henry remodels the classic fairy-tale called The Frog Prince, recalling the poem from the perspective of it’s lesser known character–with a good bit of Angela Carter thrown in there too.
