Local poet Brian Docherty, who has been a regular presence at events in Hastings, Eastbourne, Brighton and further afield for several years now, and is a member of local writers groups and poetry workshops, has just published his latest work. Blue To The Edge is a sequence of memorial poems for his wife Rosemary, who died unexpectedly in January 2016.
“These are part of my response to bereavement, and are the most personal poems I have ever written. I’ve been lucky enough to be part of local writing groups such as Words For Wellbeing and Shorelink Writers, and also Hastings Stanza Workshop, where most of these poems were drafted, and later workshopped. I never set out to write this sequence; I wrote the first one at the Lantern Society event in The Printworks in September 2017, and just carried on.”
