One for the Road

by Helen Mort and Stuart Maconie (ed.)

Price: £10

Funny, moving, tender, tipsy - the ideal poetic pub-crawl.


Join some of the UK’s best contemporary poets on an ideal pub crawl, guided by Stuart Maconie and Helen Mort


This anthology will showcase a variety of new writing celebrating the British pub and everything that happens there: glass-half-full poems, early doors and last orders poems, it’s-your-round-next poems, poems so urgent they had to be scribbled on beer mats.



As well as a poem, each writer featured in the book will also share their favourite pub with you – real or imagined, thriving or long-since shut. Stuart Maconie and Helen Mort will ferry you on your way with short prose pieces inspired by the theme – a literary bar-hop. 




Helen Mort is a poet from Sheffield. Her collection Division Street was published in 2013 and shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize and the Costa Prize. In 2014, she won the Fenton Aldeburgh Prize for best first collection.

Stuart Maconie is a TV and radio presenter, journalist, columnist and best-selling author. His book Adventures on the High Teas was the top selling travel book of 2009 and Pies and Prejudice was one of 2008’s top selling paperbacks.
