‘paperfolders’ is a collection of stories about community, connectivity and creativity. The poems were written in response to the rise in populism, the pandemic, and increasing scope for isolation and abuse within society. The poems shift from fatalism to resilience, both individual and collective, describing paperfolders who model birds, and send letters, while deals and contracts are sealed on screens.
Chris Hemingway was born in Mansfield, studied in Leeds and Manchester, and now lives and works in Gloucestershire. His debut pamphlet ‘Party in the Diaryhouse’ (Picaroon Poetry) was published in 2018, and his work has featured in a range of poetry magazines. Chris has worked as a volunteer for Cheltenham Poetry Festival and Gloucestershire Writers’ Network and he has also written, gigged and recorded as a solo singer and in various collaborations around the Country.
“These poems are clear, often funny, never trivial. You can hear the voice. You know where its owner stands, what they see, how it affects them.”
“‘paperfolders’ is a deft meditation on movement, from feet on pavements to a pen at rest. Hemingway finds the line between everyday and apocalyptic and walks it well."
