Chill Factor, Gill Learner’s second collection, resonates with her concerns for the state of the world, its political and environmental predicaments and problems. Yet interwoven with those sustained themes are poems further responding to her interest in crafts and skills, as well as her love of music. Family and friends, both dead and alive, mingle with people from the world of literature and history to form uniquely peopled landscapes evoked in the vividly colloquial language we have come to expect from this poet.
Gill Learner. Paperback, 210 x 135 mm, 64 pages, June 2016.
