We are very sorry to announce the death of the poet, publisher, and street band drummer David Attwooll, whose first collection,  The Sound Ladder,  we published in 2015.  Shortly before his sudden decline, plans had been put in place to publish a second collection in October 2017. Work on this second collection will continue with the aid of  David’s family and colleagues. Our condolences go to his wife and children for their loss. Among David’s many achievements, he was Chairman of the Board for Liverpool University Press. A full obituary notice can be found on their website here.
