Odyssey

I have two poems on the sun-drenched Odyssey poetry website today: one new one, part of a sequence responding to the life and work of Edward Burra; and one from my collection.

New reviews on Sphinx

There is a new batch of reviews up on Sphinx, among which are no less than three excellent reviews of Richie McCaffery’s new pamphlet, First Hare, and my review of Ben Ray's New Poets’ Prize-winning pamphlet, The Kindness of the Eel. As ever, Sphinx is a tremendous resource for anyone looking for new poetry pamphlets.

Poetry in Surrey Libraries

My thanks to Neil Richards for posting a poem of mine on the Poetry in Surrey Libraries website. It’s a response of sorts to Liz Berry’s poem ‘5th Dudley Girl Guides’, from her collection Black Country. Amongst other recent posts are excellent poems by Write Out Loud Woking co-hosts Greg Freeman and Rodney Wood.
