Everything All at Once

Everything All at Once

Author: Steven Camden Format: Paperback Release Date: 12/07/2018

An achingly beautiful collection of poems about one week in a secondary school where everything happens all at once. Zooming in across our cast of characters, we share moments that span everything from hoping to make it to the end of the week, facing it, fitting in, finding friends and falling out, to loving lessons, losing it, and worrying, wearing it well and worshipping from afar. In Everything All At Once, Steven Camden's poems speak to the kaleidoscope of teen experience and life at secondary school. 'All together. Same place. Same walls. Same space. Every emotion under the sun Faith lost. Victories won. It doesn't stop. Until the bell. Now it's heaven Now it's hell. Who knows? Not me I just wrote what I can see So what's it about? Here's my response It's about everything All at once.'
