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 2021? 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.)
