A busy few days of work kicked off with this fantastic reading over at the Wordsworth Trust:
I did two 15 minute sets, using the first one to read a wide-ranging set of work from my first pamphlet, my upcoming pamphlet, the cricket poems as well as some brand new pieces
The second half I read extracts from my brand new sequence; it was a scary thing to do and I really wasn’t sure if there would be a good level of concentration, or whether people would be able to follow the slightly erratic collage-like structure of the poem. Still not sure how it went down but got a few positive comments.
They also put together this wonderful reading guide about my poems:
