This anthology will showcase a variety of new writing celebrating the British pub and everything that happens there: glass-half-full poems, early doors and last orders poems, it’s-your-round-next poems, poems so urgent they had to be scribbled on beer mats. As well as a poem, each writer featured in the book will also share their favourite pub with you – real or imagined, thriving or long-since shut. Stuart Maconie
and Helen Mort
will ferry you on your way with short prose pieces inspired by the theme – a literary bar-hop.
