Briony Bax - Lament

Subscription Save


Briony Bax leads the reader through the brutal world of mental illness and specifically an account of an individual’s journey with schizophrenia. A world where sections, court rooms, locked wards, tribunals, and assessment centres form the backdrop of the daily living of sufferers and caregivers. Through honesty and testimony, it shines a light on the disastrous effects of government austerity measures on the mentally ill.

Briony Bax is a poet and editor. She’s edited Ambit Magazine since 2013 and her poems have appeared in Ambit, Meat, Herrings Anthology and New River Press Anthology. She is the poetry editor for The New European. As a social advocate she’s the Founder of The Orphan Support League in the USA and has volunteered at the Saidia Children’s Home in Gilgil, Kenya for the last 12 years. She sits on the Board of Trustees for Theatre Ad Infinitum, Saidia Children’s Charity, The Wells Maltings Trust and serves as a local councilor in Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
