He has published in learned journals and poetry magazines.

 

Risk of Skin

Now over four years since his first volume of poetry for Waterloo Press, Risk of Skin marks a new phase in Pollard’s engagement with the essence of human existence. Rather more varied than the earlier volume it includes a set of obituaries, poems on historical characters, on creativity and mortality. The volume ends with a series of pieces on Keats and his circle which is a new departure for this poet. This is an inspiring and original book of poems.
