2012 Updates . . . Publication of 'The Holy Place' by John Dotson and Caroline Gill
|'The Holy Place' Launch Reading: co-author John Dotson,|
publisher Peter Thabit Jones and me, Dylan Thomas Birthplace, Swansea
“Caroline Gill’s poems are written with an unerring sense of appropriate form. This makes her perception of landscapes and seas emerge all the more powerfully, as she explores places in people and people in places, the ‘rocks and stones and trees’ of Wordsworth’s poem. The effect is that of an enquiring, exciting mind, disciplined and accurate, yet also open to the magical and mysterious that lies just beneath the surface.”
“Caroline has 18 poems in a chapbook, 'The Holy Place' ... I really enjoyed reading them and am sure you will too."
