no more poetry celebrates the launch of their 20th publication; the second poetry collection from Nat Briggs titled ‘FLOWER ENGINE’. This collection of cinched, bright free-verse explores the passing locations of love and the slow, private operations of pain’s knocking counterweight.

The book extends Briggs’ relay of concise universal suggestions, translating them through brief, intimate utility. Briggs will be joined by nmp editors daniel ward and Joshua Edward and friends of the press for a poetry reading and book sale.



Presented by no more poetry
Since 2020 no more poetry has edited, published and publicly launched upwards of 20 debut poetry, or art collections, from both local and international emerging authors, as well as more than 10 articles of printed ephemera featuring over 250 local and international authors.
