Chronic Poetics


Chronic Poetics is a new anthology published and produced by Point Positive Publishing and Colliding Lines. It exclusively features artists with an experience of chronic disability and chronic pain. Through essays, poetry, images and design, this collection is what we wish people understood about living with a chronic condition.

Throughout the book, text-based work is visually interpreted by typographic artists Angharad Hengyu Owen and Molly Haig.

Alongside the print collection is an online appendix, featuring medical information, project research findings, further work, and more information about the artists in the book. You can visit the project website here.

Chronic Poetics is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
