    Praise for Zoë Skoulding 'Zoë Skoulding'€™s poetry is meditative, a drawing aside of curtains to allow a scene to be discovered to the reader: it seems like an act of instant as if a light is suddenly turned brightly focused upon a moment. This is a poetry to go back to time and time again.'
    Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence
