Week 6 Chapbook Chart 2019 – Marcia Knight-Latter

Ramblings External by Marcia Knight-Latter externalises the unfiltered thought behind everyday experiences. The pamphlet explores space and time as the poet manipulates an internal narrative during regular activities by focusing predominantly on the distractions that come from within the thinking process, leading to more abstract connections. The reader receives an intentional delivery of information through careful formatting which allows for the extension of thought, to explore how a thought is visualised and heard. Marcia combines simple language with contextualised contractions and lyrical abstractions to produce intense imagery and a disjointed aesthetic.

Marcia Knight-Latter is a poet and writer, currently studying Creative Writing with Psychology at Kingston University. “Marcia has a rare energy, organically tuned into experiment and play without being an at all laden with theory” SJ Fowler.
