Darkness & Light
First came the darkness, then came the light. Darkness & Light is a poetry collection documenting the emotional journey of overcoming mental illness and finding the strength to be whole again. In this book, I hope you find comfort in my words, feel a part of my story in yours, see the beauty in the ordinary and if like me, you have ever lived in the shadows, I hope you find your light — Emma-Jane Barlow
The First Line Poets Anthology
Created by Emma-Jane Barlow in 2020, the First Line Poets Project is an online collaborative initiative that pairs up writers from across the globe to write poetry using first lines as inspiration. This anthology is a compilation of work from past and present members of the project. The poets in this book are like individual fingerprints; no two are the same. Some speak in different mother tongues, some have only just found writing and others have been writing from the moment they could hold a pen.
The talented poets who were selected to be published in this anthology share their bravery, passion and vulnerability in these poems, written just for you — Emma-Jane Barlow
