This week, my guest is the fab H-J Hoyles (aka Hadley-James Hoyles).
H-J Hoyles is a poet, musician, author and teacher from North Yorkshire, who is based in Edinburgh. His poetry is concerned with the impact of nature on the human psyche, the effects of the landscape on mental health and cultural memory, and modern day myth-making. He is the founder of the Alcove poetry organisation in Edinburgh, a member of The Heretics, also based in Edinburgh, and has been published by the likes of Poetry Lab Shanghai, Together Behind Four Walls, The Inkwell, Yellerzine, The Klecksograph and MONO. His debut pamphlet, Songs of the Hen Ogledd, is available from Wild Pressed Books.
I’ll be chatting to Hadley about Songs of the Hen Ogledd and about his poetry and writing more broadly. And, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
