FROM the majestic beauty of Ingleborough in North Yorkshire to fascinating landscapes and people in Europe, South Africa and far flung places beyond, a new collection of poetry by a Lancaster University academic is bound to capture the imagination.

Professor of Creative Writing and Transcultural Literature Graham Mort, has just had his tenth collection of poems, Black Shiver Moss, published by Seren Books.

Graham - who also writes radio drama and fiction - will read from his new collection and sign copies of the book at Waterstones, Lancaster, on Friday, August 25, from 7.30pm.
