In 2013, Ink Sweat & Tears set up its print publishing arm with the launch of our Christmas anthology TWELVE: Slanted Poems for Christmas. Since then we have taken over the publication of the winning pamphlets for the Café Writers Pamphlet Commission which expanded from Norfolk to the whole of the UK in 2014 and saw two very talented poets share the honours.
IS&T/CAFE WRITERS COMMISSION COMPETITION WINNING PAMPHLETS
The Arthurian tale of Sir Morien is the story of a young knight described as being “black from head to toe”, who rides to Camelot to find his father.
But what happened before this story began? Jay Bernard’s The Red and Yellow Nothing is a prequel that asks this question, and in the process meditates on the black presence in European art and culture, long before the invention of the divisive racial categories that exist today.
Morien’s story moves across genders, landscapes and centuries with references as diverse as William Dunbar and Kendrick Lamar. Patience Agbabi calls the collection “a psychedelic trip of genre and gender, fizzing with 600 years of wordplay.”
