The Black Light Engine Room

The Black Light Engine Room publishes magazines and chapbooks out of Middlesbrough in the North East of the UK. It is a thriving collection of poets marshalled by editor-in-chief p.a. morbid who also organises and hosts regular poetry readings - in short he has helped create a community of voices for the North East of England which I am proud to have been a part of.

BLER has published a number of my page works (including poetry, stories and sketches) which are wholly different to the more rambunctious performances that I have been delighting London with these past years, and so I owe BLER a debt of gratitude for enabling me to express the quieter whisperings of my mind. If you have only seen me perform, please do take a look through this little collection of works published by The Black Light Engine room.

You can read the story that was pubished in Issue 8: Funeral which also shows the back-cover artwork I created for issue 9 (the front-cover artwork is shown here)

As well as my half chapbook Dark Matter 9 BLER have published the following works:

Issue 5: London Knives

Issue 6: The 11th Minute of the 11th Hour, Nothing Says I Love You

Issue 7: End of days, Let The Shadow Grow

Issue 8: Funeral

Issue 9: Front and Back cover artwork

Issue 10: St. George's Day 2014, May Day 2014

Dark Matter

Dark Matter is a series of chapbooks from The Black Light Engine Room press. Each book in the series features 2 poets and aims to give more space to feature their work following on from contributions to the Black Light Engine Room magazine.

Volume 9 features Ant with Kirsten Luckins, (both represented by Apples and Snakes) and in this collection Ant has presented a series of works more aimed at the page than the stage to provide a new insight into his work.
