For me, poetry is all about engaging with an audience, sharing ideas, and making connections. This page is where you’ll find news of forthcoming gigs – I’ll update it as necessary every few weeks – and any other bits and pieces of poetry news I have to share. What’s going on in 2020? Find out here!

(possibly unnecessary note: Covid-19, and the subsequent lockdown which closed pubs, arts centres, cafes etc, has rather put paid to the live performances I had planned. I’ve now started exploring the world of Zoom, so it may be you can see me on a computer screen in the comfort of your own home very soon. I’ll post details below.)

all times, everywhere
Meanwhile…. my SIXTH book of poems.
‘thirty-one small acts of love and resistance’
is on sale here.

Sunday July 12th
Myself and Wolves Poet Laureate Emma Purshouse
are doing THREE Zoom gigs, with completely different sets each time.
3pm, 7.30pm, 11pm.
Get in touch for meeting details.


As and when it becomes possible to gig once more, I’ll be actively seeking bookings to promote my sixth volume of poems, so do get in touch if you’d like to offer a gig. Thanks.
