Katrina On ‘Boasting Sonnet’ from Wild Persistence

Katrina Naomi discusses her poem ‘Boasting Sonnet’ in a guest post for Proletarian Poetry.

She explains how this poem from her third collection, Wild Persistence, came about, discusses issues around class and how our lives shape us and our poems. You can also read ‘Boasting Sonnet’ in full in the article.

Katrina’s third collection, Wild Persistence, was published on 1 June by Seren Books. Helen Mort calls the book ‘Funny, moving, surprising, unflinching and, above all else…joyous’.

It is available direct from the publisher, priced at £9.99 or – if you’re based in the UK – from Katrina, who will also sign your copy.
