We have just completed work on Blue Scars by Glenn Lee, a poetry collection from the South Wales valleys. ‘Blue Scars’ of the title refers to coloured scar tissue on the hands of miners caused by coal dust and the poems evoke the texture of life and work in the Welsh Valleys from the 1950s. They are frequently elegaic, sometimes regretful and always honest and moving. Many of them have been performed at meetings of the Anglo-Welsh poetry Society.
Glenn Lee is a Shropshire writer. The book is due for publication shortly. http://bluescarspoetry.co.uk
