About Fair Acre Press

A discerning new press. The Fair Acre Press style: – Unfussy language with something to say

Jan Fortune, Envoi, Feb 2015


This is one of the most delightful ‘green’ poetry projects I have heard of in recent years Carol Ann Duffy on Shropshire Butterflies

Nothing is ordinary in these poems  Philip Gross on Mending the Ordinary

A little book of songs – all in the easy voice of a natural poet   Gillian Clarke on Mending the Ordinary

A whimsical and unashamedly intimate pamphlet from the first line. But there are serious questions running through this pleasing pamphlet… It is these questions and the recognition of mortality that elevates this sequence from a private tribute to a life-event into a lyrical consideration of change and time. Envoi on The Grandpa Years

I am hugely impressed. By concentrating on the small things, really looking at them, they have managed to articulate something enormous  Katrina Porteous on Road Kill

A collaborative collection, the two poetry sequences..are given added depth and resonance by Peter Tinkler’s darly mythic opening sequence of exquisitely produced illustrations..This is a deeply satisfying, layered work that will bear rereading.       Envoi  on Through the Woods

It is intriguing to read through the little magnifying glass. It is a handsome production and will make people look more closely and investigate for themselves  Roger Garfitt on Lawn Lore

Due to the terrifically high production values this volume successfully brings a piece of the past into the home, whilst inside the poets explore Brookes’ very personal, local legacy with depth, intelligence and wit. Tom Wentworth  on William Penny Brookes
