“Donna Jones creates splendid emotive lines of dark sensations and flickering images of hope. A brave writer who plunges ever deeper into the dimensions of the lesser spoken side of humanity, always providing a haunting journey into another’s story.” ROWAN BLAIR COLVER
‘Donna Jones is a powerhouse of talent. Her work is at once funny, yet poignant, reaching deep inside hearts and minds. Each word is chosen with pinpoint accuracy to convey its razor sharp meaning. Unforgettable.’ JOAN ELLIS
Donna Jones, writes from the heart with a gut-wrenching honesty and bravery that seizes you by the throat and doesn’t let you go. There is no let-up in what Donna makes you face. Her poems are raw, visceral, profound, condensing the tragi-comedy of her life and all our lives into a deeply moving shared experience. A Poet Laureate in the making! BARBARA JANE MACKIE
