Writing for the page
poetry / prose poetry / short prose / articles / blogs


A first full collection of works for the page. Scrublands consists of four sequences of poetry / prose poetry with one more still in development. Poet Mimi Khalvati has said of the collection: "Each sequence is highly distinctive and adventurous in its form but they all cohere almost as if part of a book-length quest or spiritual pilgrimage. Though pitched in that liminal space between life and death, in a kind of purgatory, and haunted by existential angst, Mark C. Hewitt’s poetry is firmly grounded in contemporary experience and enlivened by delightful wit and humour. Powerful emotion is always held in check by a pragmatic, almost macabre cheerfulness – a ‘best get on with it’ approach to life."
