“Ross Donlon”, Donlon writes, “has been highly commended for not entering poetry competitions ..” and has been “forcibly rejected by some of the finest literary magazines / in the country, / including Northerly, Southerly, Easterly, Westerly”.

“… beautiful phrasing, keen observation and that certain knack of expressing things seen and unseen, the ambivalence that is half-in and half-out of one’s poetic imagination” (Neil Leadbeater, Write Out Loud)
