Book launch of ‘Flint’

My poetry pamphlet Flint (Contraband Books) will be launched on Friday 27th May at King’s College. I will be in conversation with author Quentin S. Crisp, followed by a reading from the book. The event is organised by UNAM UK. I hope you can come!

For some reason, if I want to add the link, a horrible “embedded” Eventbrite page appears instead, so here’s the info:

Friday 27th May, at 5.30 pm, at King´s College, London, Strand campus, Kings Building. K6.63, WC2R 2LS.

‘Flint’ review in Wood Be Poet

Yesterday Chris Edgoose published a most generous review of my eBook Flint in his Wood Bee Poet blog.

I want to thank Chris here for such an attentive reading of my piece. It is always a great joy to find such readers!

You can read the review here:

Chris Edgoose’s declaration of principles regarding his reviews of poetry talks of a profound, curious and insightful engagement with poetry that I find liberating and necessary. He affirms to see poetry as both ‘part of the world’, and ‘a way in to the world’, and his blog is an invitation to that understanding and that journey. His guiding principles are here:
