Caleb Parkin’s dark and mischievous second collection Mingle stirs up the toxicities between landscapes and bodies, in poems bubbling with the intoxications of hyper-wealth and climate nationalism.




Caleb Parkin has poems in The Guardian, The Rialto, The Poetry Review and was guest poet on BBC Radio 4’s Poetry Please. His debut collection, This Fruiting Body, was longlisted for the Laurel Prize 2022. He’s published three pamphlets: Wasted Rainbow (tall-lighthouse), All the Cancelled Parties (collected City Poet commissions) and The Coin (Broken Sleep). He tutors for Poetry Society, Poetry School, Cheltenham Festivals, First Story, Arvon, and holds an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes (CWTP). From 2023, he’s a practice-as-research PhD candidate at University of Exeter, as part of RENEW Biodiversity.

It’s a playful invitation to a queer ecopoetics that permeates our bodies and speech, our gardens, homes, and city suburbs. It reintroduces us to a Nature we’ve dragged up until it’s unrecognisable.
