NEW pamphlet: Semblance out now


‘ . . . feisty feminist, warrior poet, sharp as the blade she wields, Scotthorne matches the rhythms, focus and structure of her martial arts practise to the written word . . .’
Barbara Donne

‘ . . . a balance of introspection and activity, Scotthorne’s work hurts the soul through its jabs, chops and violent attacks all executed with fine self-control and patient care born of long practice . . .’
Jude Cowan-Montague

‘ . . . (this) poetry blazes with the radical ambition of American poet Stephen Berg; Scotthorne has the rare gift for innovation that so many of our published poets lack. This is essential reading for anyone who cares where poetry goes next . . . ‘
Dan Duggan

This is a new pamphlet published by Erbacce-Press in January 2016. It’s all about my relationship with my martial arts swords. My chance meeting with film maker/translator Albert Zhang in 2015, and subsequent conversations led me to write Semblance. I owe Albert a debt of gratitude for making this poetry and my Chinese Martial Arts into a film of the same name and for translating these poems into Mandarin and Cantonese.
