New Year news

The Mary Evans Picture Collection has a poetry blog which publishes poems inspired by, or linked to, pictures in their library. My poem ‘Beuys Don’t Cry’ is on there.

Also, I have a few readings coming up:

19 February, 8pm: Coffee-House Poetry at The Troubadour, 263 Old Brompton Road, Earl’s Court, SW5

23 February, 8pm: Fourth Friday, Poetry Café, Betterton Street, London, WC2H 9BX

18 March, 7.30: Torriano Meeting House, 99 Torriano Avenue, Kentish Town, NW5 2RX


On the Poetry Biz Writing School front, I’ve now been grouped with Ramona Herdman and David Underdown for exchanging and critiquing poems and sharing views on certain books – amongst others, we’re each reading Stepping Stones, the great Dennis O’Driscoll’s interviews with Famous Seamus himself, and Richard Murphy’s 1963 neglected but brilliant collection, Sailing to an Island.
