John Foulcher

Our featured poet this week is the very first reprobate we published back in 2012. John has published 11 collections of poetry over the past 35 years - the most recent three with PSP. His greatest hits and golden oldies are collected in the first of our 101 Poems series. To celebrate John's anointment as the first ever PSP poet of the week, we are offering free postage to any place on Planet Earth when you buy a copy of the limited edition, signed and numbered hardback of The Sunset Assumption .
