Second Light is a network of women poets, founded by Dilys Wood in 1994, which aims to develop and promote the work of women poets through publications, readings, one-day courses, residential workshops and festivals. It has published several anthologies in association with established poetry publishers and through its publishing arm, Second Light Publications.
Silbercow has work with Second Light for several years and has designed 5 book covers including the recent Her Wings of Glass (2014) and it’s sister anthology Fanfare (2015).
Martin Parker always seems to be ahead of what is required in his designs for us. We have received praise for the covers – praise which is not rightfully the publisher’s – as Martin has conceived designs which are both vivid and elegant, based only on a ‘wish-list’ from us. – Dilys Wood, Second Light Publications
