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 2023? Find out here!

(I know the world of gigs has opened up again since Covid-19 first blessed us with its presence, so this is probably a good time to point out that I’m fine with getting up behind a mic in pubs, arts centres, cafes etc, and just as comfortable sharing my words with folk via the miracle of Zoom. Have audience will travel, kind of thing.)

all times, everywhere
