An Easy Day for a Lady

Featured in The Guardian, Helen Mort's poem: An Easy Day for a Lady

Helen Mort’s new poetry collection, No Map Could Show Them (Chatto), is a witty and innovative exploration of women and mountaineering that is seriously playful with history in the assured voice of a modern young woman who also has other lives and other interests (love poems, a missed train, heart surgery, running, the starling murmuration above Middleton Moor, the sauna worker who knows ‘I work in mental health’).

With great sadness we report the death of Ken Wilson. A great friend of The Boardman Tasker Mountain Literature Award from the outset. As publisher he had a number of books on the shortlist and was always present at the BT event. Ken was a huge character and will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all of us. He was awarded the Boardman Tasker Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.
