The Library of Ice - new publication

I'm delighted to announce that The Library of Ice, a memoir of my seven-year adventure in search of the world's disappearing ice, will be published this autumn by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster - and copies are now available to pre-order. Thank you to everyone who has accompanied me on these journeys, both in the Arctic and back home, especially those who assisted with my research over the last year. If you'd like to be kept informed about the launch event in November 2018, please email me: nancy@nancycampbell.co.uk

Phoenix rising from the canal, Oxfordshire

Since the beginning of the year I've been working on several Canal Laureate projects with The Poetry Society and the Canal & River Trust, and contributing a monthly blog to Waterlines.

One of the latest projects to reach completion is a new filmpoem, The Cut, created in collaboration with the Canadian artist Pierre Tremblay. The Cut was screened daily as part of Barge Fiodra's residency on the Regent's Canal at King's Cross, London, during April (in a double bill with vintage short film The Barge Fellows). The filmpoem can now be viewed here.

I'm looking forward to working with the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and the Macclesfield Canal over the summer, and presenting new poems at watery events in York and Bedford -- keep an eye on the Canal Laureate Twitter feed or website for updates.
