Neil Fulwood, who lives and works in Nottingham, co-edited More Raw Material (2015) a collection of essays, poems and short fiction, published as a tribute to Alan Sillitoe. His own first full collection of poems, No Avoiding It, was published by Shoestring Press in 2017. He is also the author of two poetry pamphlets, Numbers Stations and The Little Book of Forced Calm, both published by The Black Light Engine Room Press. Andy Croft praised No Avoiding It in The Morning Star as ‘A sustained and splendidly grumpy dismissal of the way we live now.’ The new collection, Can’t Take Me Anywhere, while continuing to work the vein Croft rightly praised, extends Fulwood’s wideranging, keen-eyed accounts of millennial Britain, and his witty, dexterous command of form. The result is a collection as bracing as it is intensely enjoyable.

Praise for No Avoiding It:

“A home town geography of work and class.” – Martin Figura

“Neil Fulwood is very good at writing tight, elegiac portraits of the changing patterns of work and working-class culture.” – Andy Croft, The Morning Star

“Neil Fulwood’s debut collection places work and class at its very core, echoing sentiments of Alan Sillitoe’s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.” – Ella Poyzer, LeftLion
