Helen Burke

...
Helen Burke is a poet constantly on tour, and at each stop she makes time to take requests from the audience, for favourite poems from her vast back catalogue. These 'requested poems' have been brought together for Here's Looking at You Kid, the long-awaited follow-up to Helen's much-loved first collection The Ruby Slippers.
...
"Burke writes wittily and sensitively, with insight, and not a jot of sentimentality."
...
Helen Burke was born in Doncaster, 1953, and started writing poetry in the 1970s. Since then she has amassed an impressive record of competition victories, including the Manchester International, the Suffolk Poetry Prize, and the Ilkley Literature Performance Poetry Prize (twice). Her work has been published in Rialto, New Welsh Review, Northwords, Dreamcatcher, as well as in numerous anthologies and pamphlets.
Her full-length collections of poetry are The Ruby Slippers, first published in 2011, and Here's Looking at You Kid, in 2014, both published by Valley Press. February 2017 will see the release of Today the Birds Will Sing, a definitive 'collected' edition including all the poetry Helen has published since 1969.

Here's Looking at You Kid Add To Basket Helen Burke is a poet constantly on tour, and at each stop she makes time to take requests from the audience, for favourite poems from her vast back catalogue. These 'requested poems' have been brought together for Here's Looking at You Kid, the long-awaited follow-up to Helen's much-loved first collection The Ruby Slippers.
...
The Ruby Slippers is nothing less than a poetry landmark, collecting thirty-one of the finest poems from a remarkable forty-year poetry career, in which Helen - the toast of her native Yorkshire - has won more competitions and prizes than you can shake a stick at.
...
Since the mid-1980s, Helen Burke's poems have appeared in pamphlets, on greetings cards, on pieces of origami, on radio, on tape, on CD, on the side of stray dogs and in a million other places - including, more recently, two collections from Valley Press.
After months of work tracking down all these literary gems, we're proud to announce the forthcoming publication of Today the Birds Will Sing; which abandons the 'slim volume' approach, instead offering a comprehensive, exhaustive treasury of Helen's work, spanning more than 250 pages in a beautiful (and very red) hardback edition. Besides the poems, it is also filled with Helen's truly unique illustrations, and reams of notes explaining where all these poems came from.
