Mandy's first poetry collection, the pamphlet letting light in, is now available as an ebook for just 77p from Amazon.co.uk here, or Amazon.com here. The poetry is a response to the quiet arrival of spring in Assynt, so having been out of print for years, it is appropriate that it is once again available as spring blossoms begin to open.
under the aspen
where the heron shits
the first primrose
The pamphlet was originally published by Essencepress, in 2005. Mandy donated the money from sales to the Assynt Foundation community buyout of the four spectacular Assynt mountains: Canisp, Suilven, Cul Mor and Cul Beg, plus the former hunting lodge of the owners, Glencanisp Lodge. Since coming into community hands, the lodge has been completely refurbished and has been used for many more creative purposes, including writing retreats. (In July you can join Mandy on a retreat there, see here for details).
