Introducing Makina Audio!
This month we are launching our first audio programme. The project, a collaboration with access and inclusivity consultant Caroline Dawson, brings together three debut poets (originally from India, Ireland and Birmingham) reading their books in full, with additional audio descriptions illustrating the look and feel of each front cover, back cover, flaps and spine. This work is generously supported by a project grant from Arts Council England.
Glass - Cover Audio Description by Caroline Dawson
In Glass, Emily Cooper’s poetics masterfully create a compelling space that deliberately excludes wide views—instead bringing her pen up close to a dilapidated house in a small rural town with its own personality.
