‘It’s pertinent that journeys are a key theme across this bright anthology; the shuttle of memory moving between the present and the past; the poems as evidence of this for the future. Check Hope Remains takes its title from a line in Pandora and the Ballot by Micke Farren. Each poem in this anthology engages, wrestles with, implies, or proclaims – hope. Steeped in a poetics imbued with chromatics, this is a hope whose cartography is coloured and the synesthetic. Each writer is mapping what is experienced into language.’ -Rommi Smith
