Offa's Press, a Shropshire-based publisher who we at Blakenhall have worked with frequently in the past (the Manager, Simon Fletcher, used to run our group!), are compiling an anthology containing poetry written about the country of Stafforshire.
Following on from their successful 2013 anthology 'The Poetry of Shropshire', Offa's Press are inviting submissions between 15th June and 15th August of poetry relating to places, people and the history os Staffordshire.
If you'd like to submit some poetry for consideration, here are some inspirational things from Staffordshire to get your creative juices flowing:

Why not visit the lovely county of Staffordshire to see what it's all about?
