Poetry from North East England and South West Finland (Ek-Zuban 2004). A collection of work from North Eastern poets celebrating a Baltic Exchange with Finland.

Since 2003, Tees Valley poets – Andy Willoughby, Bob Beagrie, Angela Readman, Val Magee, Michael Affleck and I - have worked with a group of Finnish poets.

We’ve visited each other’s countries, performed together and translated each other’s work. It’s been a rich and rewarding connection.
