Nominee for Fire Cracker Award

Christopher Hopkins Poetry

.

Christopher’s poems have appeared in The Morning Star,  Indianapolis Review, Ink Sweat & Tears, Rust + Moth, Cortland Review and elsewhere.  Christopher has been nominated three times for the Pushcart Prize and received two American Community of Literary Magazines and Presses nominations for poetry. He is the author of two chapbooks Take Your Journeys Home & The Last Time We Saw Strangers and his first collection The Shape Of A Tulip Bird has just been released (all with Clare Songbirds Publishing House). He was born & grew up in Neath, South Wales and now resides in Faversham, Kent.

.

His work reminds me in some ways of Douglas Dunn’s Elegies, Ted Hughes’ Birthday Letters, or some of Don Paterson’s poems. Hopkins has such gifts and skills in language.”
