Here's what you say about us...

Marion Lomax is the former married name of Robyn Bolam.

A compelling and accomplished dbut…This book immediately establishes Marion Lomax as a poet of unusual talent.
TLS - Bernard O'Donoghue

There are passionate emotions in these poems, sometimes guarded and obliquely expressed. But Marion Lomax has access to a wide range of voices: Eurydice, Guinevere, Mrs Mackie with her Geordie dialect, and an unnamed woman in a labour camp - as well as her own. She writes vivid natural description, as in "Pheasants" ("In green balaclava and red face mask / Her mate invaded through a hole in the hedge./ Rain glistened on his copper, black-ribbed back"), and freer, more mysterious poems which convey an authentic otherworldly chill. In "The Forked Tree", she uses a firm grid of syllabics to create character and narrative, and an inspired closing image of wild deer: "Jumping in and out in the moonlight, through the forked tree".
Ruth Fainlight

Neither old-fashioned nor new-fangled, but abiding and spiritual.
