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.)
