Grown Up Poetry Needs to Leave Me Alone

In her vibrant and witty debut poetry chapbook, Carly Brown explores a range of subjects, from break-ups to T.S Eliot to the crushing realization that Santa Claus is not real.

The typographic design of each poem was created by artist Lydia Cruz. The design is based on an actual performance of each piece and attempts to capture such non-textual elements as speed, emphasis, pitch, mimicry, volume, and space.


The chapbook is available at a variety of independent bookshops in Scotland including: Good Press (Glasgow), Tell it Slant (Glasgow) and Word Power Books (Edinburgh). You can also purchase it at any of Carly’s poetry events.
