The Emma Press Anthology of Mildly Erotic Verse

The Emma Press Anthology of Mildly Erotic Verse

The Emma Press Anthology of Mildly Erotic Verse is an illustrated collection of poetry which celebrates the diversity and eccentricity of human sexuality. It features poems from nineteen poets from across the world and is illustrated with black line drawings by Emma Wright. It was published by The Emma Press in September 2013.

The illustrations aim to capture something of the elusive, playful spirit of the poems and to draw people in, appealing even to less confident poetry readers. The poems included in this submission are: 'Tight Dress', by Amy Key, 'The Jackal and the Moon', by Sara-Mae Tuson, and 'The Frozen Man', by Jacqueline Saphra.
