Roll&Break final front cover (1).png


Roll & Break is a collection of poems about the beach by Adrienne Jansen. But they are not your usual beach poems. An African refugee staggers from the ocean; Van Gogh is painting boatsheds; a violinist plays in a dinghy to an audience of gulls.


The book will be launched on October 8, 2022. See our
News & Events page for more information.

For more information about the book, see the Roll & Break book page.

What do you think when you see the word 'GENERATION'? We are looking for poems for our future project, launching in 2023!
