Jackson’s first poetry book Coracle reviewed by Shane McCauley in Indigo literary magazine, Western Australia 2009

My first full-length poetry book Coracle was reviewed by Shane McCauley in Indigo literary journal, issue 4, Spring 2009. Indigo was edited by Donna Ward and published by Out of the Asylum Writers Group, Fremantle, Perth, Western Australia.

From the opening lines of the first poem, the reader is introduced to a powerful, resonant and poignantly moving voice … Jackson’s poetry is lean and purposeful … There are many stunning poems here, wry and wistful, love poems with a heartbreaking absence of sentimentality, terrific poems of place and observation and understanding … Coracle is unreservedly recommended.
