These poems challenge, celebrate and give age a voice, as the poets find humour amidst heartbreak and comfort within the pain. There are poems about the physical and mental effects of ageing, visiting ageing relatives, ways to approach ageing, and what it's like to live as an old person.

Honest and often brutal, this would be a good book to read if you find the idea of ageing frightening or want to read about other people's experiences of difficult situations. The book is beautifully produced on cream paper, with ten illustrations and bright red endpapers contrasting with the dove-grey cover.

Edited by Sarah Hesketh, illustrated by Emma Wright.

Emma Wright, 30, from Winnersh, is the founder of The Emma Press. She launched her business in 2012 and is now based in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. Emma started The Emma Press because she wanted to share wonderful writing with people and create beautiful books. She used to work for a big publishing house in London, in an admin role, but she longed to do something more creative and challenging. She turned to The Prince's Trust and, with our support, was able to achieve her goals through the Enterprise programme. Since then, The Emma Press has published over 35 books and been shortlisted in the Michael Marks Awards for two years running. The Emma Press is an independent publishing house which specialises in poetry books. The list includes themed anthologies, illustrated pamphlets and poetry books for children. The books are all designed – and often illustrated – by Emma herself, and she hopes that they will appeal even to people who haven't picked up a poetry book in a long time.
