The Stories In Between
Format: Pamphlet, 40 pages,
Available (Published: December 2023)
Teresa Forrest’s debut pamphlet, The Stories in Between, explores heritage, relationships and what it means to belong. Poems about family members are rooted, as are the people themselves, in the landscape around them. But there are also lonely people wandering across the pages, asking to be listened to. And there are glimpses into other people’s lives, showing us how they have been dislocated, and how profound loss has shaped some of them. What is left unspoken, the stories in between the poems, is as important as the message conveyed.
